    I've tried a couple of different things, but most of them don't seem to stick as well as the original. The best one I've used so far is some 3M (or any other brand will work just fine for this) trim tape that you can get at pretty much any auto parts store. It's basically a thin piece of foam with adhesive on both sides, and it is what car companies use to hold anything that sticks onto the vehicle, such as the trim pieces on the outside of your doors. It holds really well, and you don't have to wait for it to set.

    Well I put the regulator in and used 3M spray glue to putthe shield back, it worked ok. But I wanted to say that it's better to replace the whole unit that has the motor installed makes things so much easier. But Putting a new outside door handle, it wasn't easy to get at.
    Eric Thanks
