    Default Bonding window latch plates to top of door

    What adhesive is used to stick the FX-3 window latch plates to the top of the door?

    Does the the EX-3 also use adhesive to attach these latch plates?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    If you are talking about the top edge of the lower door and the top edge of the throttle quadrant on the left side it is clear 3M double sided tape, with well cleaned surfaces and 3M adhesive promoter applied prior to the tape.

    Pete,

    I'm asking about the small plates that act as the registers for the rotating window latches. These plates appear to made from stainless steel.

    The one at the front end of the door fell off my new FX-3. The adhesive had bonded well to the latch plate but not to the painted door surface.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    I had the same issue, and used Gorilla Glue. Worked flawlessly.
