Interior peeling.

Sorry if not the right forum. Move as needed.

Rear panels are peeling at the top. Any idea if this is common? Anything I can do other than totally replace them?

if you remove the panels, lift the portion that is peeling, spray it with spray adhesive (3M does a good job IIRC) then stretch the material as you lay it down on the glue and fold it under the edge. Use something like a clothes pin to hold the edge or it will try to retract.

I second what shadowfocus603 said just when u use the spray adhesive try and spray it on as even as possible trying not to put too much on. Spray bolth peices trying to adhere let the adhesive tack up for a min this will help with adhesion and then lay in back to normal as tight as possible and u should b golden

FWIW, The pealing is caused by water/moisture.

Might want to clear the back end out and look for obvious rust spots along the body seams. That might indicate where the water came from.

I have used vinyl/leather adhesieve in the past and it worked great.
