How would you repair this door panel?

I wanna fix this door panel, but I don't wanna make it messy with crazy glue. It looks like it was originally glued on, but I wouldn't know how to keep it on while the glue dries.

How would you fix it? I'm even temped to replace the panel.

Take the panel off and femove the armrest piece from the main door panel. Then reattach the skin to the armrest with good contact cement and hold in place with tape until dry. Then reinstall armrest onto panel and panel to door.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

I think the arm rest is plastic welded to the door panel. I don't remember, as it's been a while since I removed the door panel. I'll take it off tomorrow and have a look at it.

Just take the door panel off. And glue it on with some clamps. The door panel comes off really easy. A couple screws and some of those things that pull out an pop in. Just give it a firm tug and it comes off. Then disco the window wires and locks. Then disco the door lever rods. Ban good to go. Goodluck

You can replace the heat staking with screws from the back side.

Just an update, cause I saw someone post here, but I did heat the areas with a solder gun and it came out. Used gorilla glue and a lot of clamps to glue it back on. Then put the arm back onto the door panel with solder gun and glue sticks. Looks good now.

Too bad I did this 2 years ago...
