I guess the question is how was it attached originally?

Guessing it was removed due to your alarm issues but is there any evidence on it as to how it was attached? So glue spots or broken off tabs? My guess would either be contact adhesive or clips but looking at the back of it would allow a more educated answer.

Good good, I'll have a look and compare to mine see if I can help.

Is the alarm sorted or have you just lost the will to fight it?

I think its sorted, the ultra sonic part inside the car was unplugged buy a local guy who charged my £70,  but the alarm still kept going off, so i plugged in back in again myself,  dont fancy paying another £50 to get it plugged back in again for a two minute job, so that's why i cannot get the fascia back into place, so by accident i lifted the spare key going to work one morning and all that day the alarm did not go off, so for the next four days it was the same no false alarm triggers, so i changed the battery in the key i normally use and still no false alarm triggers, so hopefully the battery in the key was the problem.

Tbf unless you have the orientation wrong it's probably not going to help.

Are there plastic tabs to hold it in place or not? Had poke round on mine but couldn't decide if it was glued or tabbed and didn't want to break it off to find out.

Tbf unless you have the orientation wrong it's probably not going to help. The clips are plastic the problem is when u try the marry the two pieces together th ed piece in the roofline just moves upward

Are there plastic tabs to hold it in place or not? Had poke round on mine but couldn't decide if it was glued or tabbed and didn't want to break it off to find out.

Now sorted, had to put v fine strong cord around the part that sits in the roof liner and pull it down while pushing the fascia part together, fiddly but it worked, thanks for your help.

Just for future reference, would cutting strong polystyrene cubes and placing it between that and the roof lining work? I've had cars before if had to do that with?

3sportguy good tip, just a thought as i have reinstalled the sensor back into the car would i need to get it run on a computer or do car alarm electrics just plug in and work?
