Door pocket fell into panel.... Cannot glue so used Duct tape! It fixes everything!
I had this problem too and I intend to glue it back together. Mine fell after I overloaded it with too many promotional fliers.
The issue started with the clips breaking off inside the panel and there was not any clear reason for that to have happened. I have not yet fixed this issue.
