Basement Door Inner Panel Separation

Has anyone had a problem with the basement door inner and outer panels separating? It is causing a problem with the lift cylinders on several of the doors. This on a 2005 Seabreeze.

I'm not sure if the basement doors are the same, but some of the foam cores became UN-glued from the fiberglass door panels on our 05 Dolphin. After cutting out some of the caulking on the 2 sides, I pushed an 3/4"X3/4"X 2' angle between the door's core and edge of the door on each side, then squeezed the core into place with 3 C-clamps, then fastened in place with 4 pop rivets. Thin pieces of wood where placed under the C-clamps on the outside door surface to prevent damage. Doing this on both sides of the doors permanently solved this problem.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago and I used liquid nails that I purchased at Loews and after applying liquid nails used a C- clamp to hold together until it dried. haven't had any problems since. Good luck. Let us know what your final disposition was and how well it worked.
