It was hobby super glue, the cyanoacrylates which is the main ingredient in super glue, but hobby grade super glue isn’t as watered down so it dries real fast but works way better

It was specifically RC car tire glue

It’s pretty thick, and on the soft part that peeled up, a line of glue down the lip of it that tucks into the dash, stick in down in there and hold it there for a whole minute then let dry

Was it difficult to get the edge into the gap? Last summer I pushed it back in there and it stayed until fall and it WILL NOT got back or stay in there for anything now. I feel like I should either use a heat gun or wait to get hot outside to get it more pliable. Also would E6000 work well or does anyone have better recommendations? I honestly thought my dashboard situation would never have an answer.

Exclamation

Thank you for posting this thread and for all the valuable replies.

I have the exact same problem with my 2009 Eclipse and started to do some searching on how to fix it and landed here.

The solutions sound interesting, but I hate to ask: is anyone concerned about the safety of this problem? I read that it should be an NTSB recall. Is there a way to get this petitioned? I am not sure how that even works but wanted to see if it's a possibility and/or what is involved.

I actually didn't even think of the airbag issue until I read this thread, but now thinking about it, I am wondering if an airbag is deployed with that sucker popping out if it would catch and cause extensive injury.

That stated I am tempted to go the glue route but if an airbag is deployed can we be assured it would not pop back out and introduce the same risk?

I typically do not travel with a passenger but after reading this thread could not in good faith have someone sit in that seat now knowing that there is a compromised complication with the safety system.

Thank you for any insight/suggestions you can offer.

Heh, yeah if that is the hold up I can understand. I am not exactly a fan of submitting my data to hackable government databases.

Yeah I am going to try that first with some Gorilla Glue which we have laying around somewhere. If not then I will look in that RC hobby glue. Do you have a link for this somewhere, by chance?

I used the 15 minute set hobby epoxy.
The stuff you have to manually mix and get 15 minutes before it's set in place, it's stronger than the 5 minute stuff. It's been in place for almost a year now, I didn't do a perfect job, bit unless your looking for it it's hard to see. Biggest downside was holding it tightly in place for the full time.

I'm not sure yet what this will do to the dash in the long run, I just got tired of looking at the gap

Gosh I made a mess I feel like such a knucklehead. I was thinking the super glue needed to go on the top lip but there's much more surface area below it. I did try working with the Gorilla Super Glue Gel as such under it but while holding it in place for a couple minutes it didn't take.

Is there a secret magic trick to holding it down to set? Like a weight or something? Or is the expectation to sit there in an awkward position for 10 minutes trying to set your arm on it with your body weight?

I think part of the problem is that mine is popped out bad and it's really difficult to stuff it back in there, and even more so to hold it in place.

BTW I found @pcfreak4's glue here:
(Can't post URLs yet so prepend the domain to this)

/board/4g-eclipse-gs-se-specific/58497-interior-dash-popping-up.html#post1909699

I also got some acetone on the way, but would love to hear any recommendations on how to remove dried super glue from the dash.

Sexynerd34 will become famous soon enough
Took mine to an upholstery shop and they glued it back in for $100. That was a year ago and it still looks great.

Ahhh that is a good idea. All suggestions have been to replace the dash but none have gone through with a professional glue job. I'm eyeballing it myself but I am not confident whatsoever. I might give it a go and if I fail horribly then try a local upholstery to see if they can do it proper.

I also wanted to update with my super glue issue and thankfully I was able to improve it. It was a combination of acetone and this stuff here on Amazon:

/gp/product/B0000DD1QS/ (still cannot post URLs so you will have to prepend Amazon's domain to this)

I'm not sure which combo it was: acetone then debonder, or debonder then acetone, but going over it a few times with both got things to a better place and it most importantly didn't destroy the vinyl of the dash, so I am counting the small blessings atm.

Mines been slowly popping up again by passenger airbag after having it glued there with hobby super glue for 5 years sitting outside all the time in Ohio weather, I’d say that’s pretty good

Yeah that glue you referred was champion 100%. I managed to pop that sucker down and it instantly bonded, but I still managed to lean on it with the awkward side forearm maneuver for a couple of minutes and it's stood pat since.

I also was able to glue the driver's side which wasn't as bad on the first try.

That is the good news. The bad news is that although the acetone doesn't eat the vinyl, it does eat the plastic behind it and I spent half my morning messing with that catastrophe. Recall that I originally put super glue on the upper lip of the vinyl. Naturally being the genius I am I decided to try to remove it *after* having bonded it down and not before. So in the process of doing this I got acetone on the upper dash (where the airbag is) and made a disaster of a mess.

After doing some research it turns out buffing with toothpaste saved the day. The damage is done but there is no more egregious white/beige smudge marks everywhere.

In any case, I am going to wait (5 years? xD) for it to pop back out and then try to get all that caked super glue removed.

I feel I could make a video of fail based on all my misadventures now. p

BTW, I got one of these and we'll see if that helps with the heat:
