    The overhead LED brake light assembly on the rear window keeps falling off on one side.

    The LED bar is held into position by a brass plate which locates onto a rubber square fixed to the window glass. A series of dimples on the rubber plate lock into corresponding holes in the brass plate. Maybe because the rubber is getting old, the joint with the brass plate keeps failing.

    I have tried strong glue, but it keeps failing. Probably because it is a rubber/metal joint exposed to strong sunlight and icy nights. Any ideas?

    From Halfords, buy a pack of numberplate fixing pads these are double sided adhesive pads, and provided both surfaces are cleaned, will stick well.
