Mine hasn't come off, it's just gone floppy.

With regards to the window, the hinge which keeps the window open has got loose and rattles when open, so I stick an indicator relay in the gap.
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

You are welcome Michael, it is extremely strong stuff and you don't get the 'fogging stain' around the join either like you do with super glue.
