Storage door liners are swelling out at corners

The foam liner at back of doors us swelling out at corners quite a bit

I am trying to inject liberal amounts of Dicor and couple of strong claps to get them back in place. Not dry yet so not sure that will work

Anyone have Experience with this?

Thanks

The Dicor did the trick. Took a couple days to dry
Closing the doors also added pressure to seal the liners back into the door panel

Ours did the same. I pushed 1/2" X 1/2" aluminum "L" trim along each side between the door edge and foam core then squeezed the foam core back into place with C-clamps , then riveted thru the door edge into the aluminum trim. This was 3 years ago and has held up fine.

That's a genius solution to this problem!

The size of the aluminum trim or "L" strip is actually 3/4" X 3/4". Anyway , here is the pictures of before & after.

Brilliant!!

Outstanding!!

I will be doing the same thing on a couple of doors. I think once the aluminum is in place a bead of sealant along all edges might be in order.

Thanks for posting,

That's a great idea. I have a few that are coming loose. An other problem has been the attachment anchors for the struts. Here's a fix for that
