My inner door is falling apart help !

I just got this car a few months ago and have just noticed the vinyl on the inside of the door near the door handle is coming apart. Any suggestions in how to fix this without paying an arm and leg ?

3M Super 77 is your friend.

Mask off the areas that you do not want messy(The padded panel and plastic part that shows) with painters tape. pull back the padded panel a little, spray the super 77 on both sides and let it sit for 10-15 mins. for it to tac up a bit then, press the padded panel back into position. hold it for a few mins and let be for 24hrs.

I would be concerned the watershield behind the door panel might be compromised and allowing moisture to hit the back of the door panel. I would give a look to see if that appears to be the case.

The Super-77 advice is spot-on.

Naw it's just the shit adhesive ford uses . Apparently the newer stangs have similar issues after doing some research . The 3m stuff did the trick

Yeah, but Super 77 is chock full of all kinds of VOCs. Ford can't do that.
