My front side passenger panel on fender came loose when car was fairly new under warranty. The bodyshop under direction of the dealership tried to fix it with one piece of 2 sided tape per specs - didn't hold for more than a day. Then dealer got and used double thickness 3M tape from GM. That has held since - for the past 4+ years. (Don't know how we would survive today without tape ! lol )
