I have a 2004 Ford Escape, the hosiery came lose on all 4 doors. I cleaned off all that old black dried out glue of the door and hosiery panel. I had a 4 oz, bottle of Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue,( found in the craft department at Walmart or any Craft Store) it works well on fabric. Using my fingers I put a good coat of the glue on the door panel and fabric. Then I used another clean wet with water only cloth. After putting the fabric in place, I started smoothing all the air bubbles out with my hand and the rag. Then used a small puddy knife to push in the edges. It takes the glue 4 hours to dry. Advice, don't do this repair in the sun, I worked on it in my garage. It stayed on and looks as good as new. I cleaned off the door of any extra glue. I couldn't see paying the auto repair shop 45.00 a door.
