3m tape not sticky?

So I was going to put on some louvers today and they came with double sided 3m tape. The side that goes on the louvers stuck fine but when I peeled the back off the other side, they were completely smooth and dry. Not sticky at all. Its like they just forgot to glue that side of the tape. I was wondering if there was a way to fix this or if I need to put new tape on. I already applied the adhesive promoter and dont know how easy they will be to get off.

You wanna go to the local car quest or your favorite auto parts place and pick up some 3/8 3M automotive double sided tape.

You can get adhesive promoter too. It'll only cost you about $8.00.

If it's what came with them, unless they have changed, it is nowhere near the quality that you can buy at an automotive store. It is 3m yes but mine was nowhere near the quality of the 3m that I bought. Mine have been on for years now with no problems.

Remove and replace. Be sure to get the gray tape with the red plastic backing kind. Promoter is insurance as well. My Roush 1/4 Skirts came with 3M mounted but had to be removed and replaced for the same reason plus it was too thin to hold them tight against the body.

I had the same problem with my louvers. Had to go buy new 3M Tape & it was real sticky.
I didn't use promoter & they're holding up just fine.
