Carpet inserts attached to side wall, door, quarter and tailgate trim panels which have become loose may be reattached with 3M General Trim Adhesive #08080. Use the following procedure:

  1. Remove trim panel when necessary and place on clean work surface. Mask off trim panel to prevent glue over spray.

  2. Sand area of trim panel where carpet is to be re-glued using a coarse grit sandpaper. Polypropylene Panels should have a rough surface for best adhesion. Remove all sanding debris.

  3. Spray 3M General Trim Adhesive # 08080 on sanded surface and back side of carpet following manufacturer’s instruction.

  4. When both sprayed surfaces become tacky to the touch, press carpet in place, smooth out any irregularities.

  5. Remove masking materials and reinstall panel.

General Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, do not assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See a General Motors dealer servicing your brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
