From the Cabriolet to the Spyder, all Audi Convertibles come with an optional cloth top. It is not uncommon, though, for the cloth to become undone from the window. While this may seem like a relatively minor issue, it can create an opening for water to get through and stain the headliner and leave the back panel a mess. Most VW & Audi service centers can address this problem, though Audi convertible window flap repair can also be addressed by the car owner.
Solutions for Cloth Convertible Top Repair
There are various types of adhesives available at your local hardware store. Using some type of glue may not always provide a permanent solution, but it does at least provide a temporary quick fix. The following adhesives have been recommended by Audi convertible owners for use on cloth convertible tops.
Bostik 2402 – This polychloroprene adhesive is used in conjunction with Bostikure D to create a cold curing adhesive property designed for water-resistant bonding.
3M Scotch Grip Rubber Adhesive 1300L – This rubber gasket glue is made from neoprene and is designed for bonding metal, wood, plastic, and rubber.
Goop – Goop is a popular adhesive brand designed for various household uses. It is known for its waterproof properties and resistance to extreme temperatures.
Gorilla Glue – This is similar to super glue and is renowned for its ability to bond to just about any surface, including glass and cloth.
