Quarter Window Louver Coming Off

I have the Eleanor Style louvers from AM and they have been awesome for the past year they have been on my car.
Yesterday while I was driving, I heard a ripping noise and figured out later that the bottom front corner of the passenger side louver had come loose from the car.
It is no danger of coming off, it is a small area, but I want to know if it would be possible to fix without taking the entire louver off the car.
I have more 3M tape I could probably slide into the gap after I peel the old stuff off, but I do not have anymore adhesive promoter that they originally came with.

Any advice would be great. Don't want it ripping off going down the highway.

I had a similar issue with mine. I doubled the 3M take and it took care of it.

That adhesive promoter is not really that important as long as the surfaces are very clean and maybe wiped with alcohol.
You should be able to patch that area with with success.

I had one that kept coming loose. AM (Alex) sent me a free tape kit w/adhesive promoter.

It still kept coming loose. The problem turned out to be that the Louver was warped and causing tension in that one spot. They sent me a new set of Louvers and it's been perfect ever since.

AM stands behind their products. Great customer service.

BTW, you can buy the promoter on the cheap if you search.
