2008 Glove box trim repair?

Hi folks. I've searched and searched and can't seem to come across a DIY approach to fixing a peeling top glove box door trim. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

Would like to see something as well.

I was thinking of using some epoxy.

If you bought it new, try getting the dealer to do a goodwill fix for free. BMW knows they had a problem, and may be open to an "after warranty" goodwill fix.

If you didn't buy it new, you're probably out of luck, as such goodwill is typically only extended to the original purchaser.

Fixed it

I ended up following the advise of a few folks and used a VERY thin coat of Gorilla Glue, clamped it, and reinstalled. There are many types of this brand of glue, I used the one that has about 15-20 minutes of working time, and bonds in a couple hours. It's a two part glue, but the kit is just a bottle of the stuff, the 2nd part is water. Hope this helps someone out there.
