Maybe try Testors Plastic Cement? Please post if you have any success.

My 96 interior door panels have not cracked, but feel weak. I have been considering replacement and would intertain an aftermarket replacement if available and more durable than the original.

You may try removing it and reinforcing the back side with fiberglass mat and resin.

Go to junk yards, search the web. You just need to find one that is the same color as yours. Any door panel from 95-98 should work.

Well I figured some type of repair would be less trouble and cheaper than a total replacement,Don't have many good boneyards around here.

I had a problem like that were the plastic on the door panel cracked but i used gorilla glue and it worked just fine, stuck great. when you used the gorilla glue did you add a little bit of water to the glue before putting it on and did you clean the area will well ? if you did both those I'm not sure why the gorilla glue didn't work.
