Engine Cover Struts

One of the struts that holds the engine access door up has separated from the side. It appears that the adhesive which held it in place has failed.

What type of adhesive should I apply to make the repair and where is it available?

I had the same issue and posted here several months ago. I used two part epoxy and per suggestion by Lt. Dan (a wealth of information), I also put two sheet metal screws through the side of the door into the mounting block to to reinforce it. The screws can't be seen when the door is closed.

Just as MDPD said. Use a good two part epoxy then add a couple of screws. There is a tremendous amount of pressure on these mounts due to the strength of the strut. Just for safety, I added two screws to the other side also.
