Safari trim package repair

have a 95 yj Sahara. It's mostly all stock. My problem is with the door panels on the half steel doors. They have these pouches on both driver and passenger side that has like a bar top of it. On both the driver and passenger side the end near the door latch is bent from being caught on the seatbelt over and over again. I have tried finding replacement door panels but I can't find any with the pouches. I like the pouches so I don't want to get rid of them. How can I fix this so that they stay put and don't catch on the seatbelt all the time? Or is this a lost cause and I should just give it up and get rid of the pouches? Does anyone know where I would be able to find a Safari door panel that has the pouches? I tried looking through the forums to see if this had been addressed before but there's a lot of threads in this forum. The pouch on the back of the passenger side seat is also torn I think I just need to repair that one. Unless somebody knows of a way to replace that one as well.

Thanks for any information or help anybody has.

You could try to see if they have replacement interior door panels.

If it were me, I would remove the interior door panel, then try a combination of some type of glue/adhesive and some pop rivets through the inside of the pocket. maybe even cut a thin metal plate and put on the inside to put the rivets through.

You could also get an estimate from auto upholstery shop on what it would cost to replace the bar and fix the mounting.

Thank you both for the suggestions. I had not thought about auto upholstery since I guess I just default to DIY. Lol. I will have to look at all of these options.
