Door panels comig off

Hi, I have 93 saturn sl2. After 10 years just about all my door panels are seperating from the metal frames? I've tried silicone sealer and it seems to work fine on some doors after the curing of the silicone and removal of the clamps. Trouble is some fasters come out with the panels after the process. Does anyone know a better way this? better sealant, different metod,etc. Thanks snuffs

Those fasteners can be had relatively cheaply from your local auto glass shop.
If the new ones won't stay in the panel, go to a hobby shop and get a large bottle of thick CA adhesive (super glue) and a bottle of grip kicker.
That stuff never failed me in all the years I did auto glass and trim work.

do you mean the whole panel is coming away from the door frame, or the fabric is peeling off the panel itself.

for a whole panel that won't stay stuck, like when the clip mounts are broke off the back, i put a strategically placed sheet metal screw, then a little touch-up paint or just a black magic marker to darken it. make sure it doesn't go too far into the door or it might interfere with the glass

works for me (on my older stuff)

I agree with Mike. What is the actual problem/detail of what's coming apart?

My mother drives that same vehicle and I cannot place what you're talking about.

As noted, make sure the clips are secure and all there. Should be fine.
