    Adhesive for Wood Center Console?

    The wood on the center console of my Z3 is slightly loose at the bottom of the section surrounding the clock, A/C controls, etc. Last time I had the car at the dealership, I asked them to look at it, but they refused to attempt repairing it out of fear they would break it.

    My thinking is that I could use a thin blade to apply additional adhesive underneath the wood and reattach it at the bottom, but I don't know what would be the best adhesive to use. Would contact cement be the best choice? I don't think Super Glue would be good, because I don't think it would be good to have too strong of a bond, should I ever need to completely replace the surface.

    I've taken mine apart...

    ...when installing the airbag cutoff switch. Where is it loose? Can you post a picture? I don't recall anything that glue would fix offhand; it was all bolted together...unless I'm misunderstanding where the problem is.
