Air Conditioner Vents Magnets 2017 Anthem

My vents are falling down. My guess is that the magnets are perhaps to strong? Wondering if anyone else is having this issue and what glue they are using to connect the magnet to the plastic vents.
thanks

I did the mod on my classic and went through three different glues before I found that Weldwood contact cement with the brush in the lid worked the best. Got mine at Walmart. Apply it to both surfaces, the instructions state and let it tack up for 10 minutes.

Air Conditioner Vents Magnets 2017 Anthem

The problem is the glue that they use on the magnet won't grab on the smooth surface of the magnet. If you look at the vent, the super glue is still there....but none on the magnet. To repair, mark the side that's up and then rough up the back side a little....rub it on some concrete or something. Then clean it real good with some alcohol or MEK. Apply Super Glue and squeeze. Don't reinstall for 24 hours.

Exactly what I did. I took 100 grit sandpaper and roughed it up and used Gorilla Glue. After that I have had ZERO problems.
