    The driver's side/left-hand side side applique is loose and after lifting the back part of it, most of the applique just snapped off of the body. The clips that hold the applique is still connected and not adhered to the body anymore. It looks like the adhesive glue is old and dry now. I used the adhesive/rubber seal from the door handle seal since I replaced that recently and it works sort of, but I want to scrape it all off from the body and apply fresh adhesive.

    Does anyone know what kind of adhesive I need to use? Here is a link to what I need to do, basically. I have the 2nd-gen applique, but the 1st-gen guide goes into a bit more detail:
    Side Applique - 1st Generation - LH (Remove and Replace)
    Side Applique - 2nd Generation - LH (Remove and Replace)
