03 mach 1 quarter window scoops

So I bought a set of quarter window scoops for my 03 and they came with the double sided foam tape from 3m. They held fine for a few weeks then began to come loose. Eventually I just took them off because I didnt want to lose one while driving. Anyone have this problem or know of a better way to mount these?

To solve that problem you can create a moisture barrier so the water doesn't get to the sticky side of the tape by running a small bead of clear silicone all around the edges of the scoops works very well for me

OP,

If you're still running into issues on top of the new 3M Double sided adhesive take a look locally for 3M Adhesive Promoter. It'll create a chemical reaction that's going help bond the tape to the scoop that much better!
