    I think the control panel can be removed to inspect why it is slipping and then reposition.

    If it were me I’d pop the button panel off, I would think it would be held in place by some type of clips, not sure so attempt at your own risk, after removed I’d tape everything off and try resticking it with some 3M aerosol glue…I did the same thing on my wife’s Honda CR-V last year and it’s still holding. May also try some contact cement with a little brush it may do the trick but it’s not very forgiving in regards to allowing the fabric to slip around. Just my opinion, I’m sure there’s better ways.

    Thank you for your reply! I was hoping someone knew if that panel does, in fact, come off and more importantly how :)!

    Thanks for the idea! Any ideas where the clips may be? What to look for? Slip a screwdriver around it and see what happens ? This is all new to me! I appreciate the glue ideas! Of course I have every adhesive except the spray and contact cement :)!!

    I would be very gentle if you don't know where clips are located. It is so easy to break them. And it's better to have one of the plastic tools handy because a screwdriver can cause damage in my experience

    yours is probably like mine there's no clip. But you need to lift it closer to the armrest than the side closest to the door jam

    Oh so it kind of snaps on? The “clips” might be plastic “nubs” on the control panel cover? I’m trying to find a few videos but yeah that’s the piece! Thank you!

    Yes thats it

    could probably find a video if you search for removing the door panel. Because that is one if several parts that need to come off first if I'm not mistaken,

    Slip a thin plastic spatula under the rear end of the button panel and push forward to depress the clip and lift it out. Most Tundras I've seen have this issue. I removed my door card. Applied 3M Super 77 and glued the fabric down and then used some long pieces of masking tape to hold it down to the inside of the card while the adhesive cured. Lasted about a year and it's starting to peel again. I think Toyota skimped and cut the fabric too short to get a good grip on the door card.

    The door panel is often called a door card.

    On mine the fabric portion is starting to peel away from under the plastic part along the top of the door panel. I just push it back in place and then a week or so later its starting to separate again a bit.

    Well shucks, now I need a clearer picture in my head… are you referring to the white, what appears to be, plastic piece that the material is against? If so, this piece just slips out? Trying to figure out how I would do this… oh and thanks!

    Same here. It's an issue for the fabric as well in the non-limited trucks that don't have leather interiors.

    I was told 3M Super 77 is the schiz but after a few years it’s pulling away again. Damn Toyota- an extra half-inch of fabric would have prevented this. Every Tundra in SC suffer this.

    Please post how it goes. I haven’t done anything yet. Kind of afraid I’m going to mess up the button panel!

    Mine looks very similar, not full separation like that yet, but any day now. I drive sitting in the passenger seat just to be safe.

    It absolutely is the shit when used properly. It’s what I’ve always used for headliners, 77 and the Super Yellow (08090). But how you use it is super important for permanent hold. You need to clean/remove adhesive residue from both sides, then spray both sides of what you want to stick together, give 5-10 minutes for it to flash, then stick them together. That’s be a PITA for this specific spot, to avoid overspray, I’m sure. I’d probably shoot the stuff into a cap, then use an acid brush to brush onto both sides after cleaning off the old stuff. Let flash, stick together.

    Cleaning is probably the most important part. If you still have old (failed) adhesive on things, and you apply good adhesive over failed adhesive, you’re back to square one.

    Maybe you do it this way, I dunno. If so, my bad. I’d expect it to work. I had to do this on a late 80s/early 90s Mirage I owned back in the day with a dash foam that wouldn’t stop peeling up. Worked like a champ and stayed together baking in the Florida sun for at least a couple years, before I totaled it.

    I'd take the button panel out and use some 3M glue to glue it back on.

    That said, every time I've remove the button panel, I was pulling the entire door panel off. Don't think that is necessary though (but it does allow you to easily see where the clips are).
