I know I can get glue and everything but asking me to fix it with glue is like asking me to run a marathon. Do you all know of any places that can fix it?

Guess you could take it into a shop an' have them do it....but honestly, it's VERY easy to do yourself - just be sure to use a single-edge razor blade to get off the old adhesive (most forget to do so, and the "repair" doesn't last because of it), wipe it down with denatured alcohol, glue, hold for 30 seconds - and done.

^^This. To make it easier, you could take a whiteboard marker, one that wipes off easier, to mark or outline where the old one went, even though it should be very noticable. But plop some glue down, hold, clean up around with some glass cleaner and over and out. Should cost the price of the glue and/or other materials you dont have. But the razor and alcohol are good to keep around for registration/inspection sticker time.

I can do most things myself, but this is something (the do it yourself kits) that has never worked for me. The glue never holds. Don't know why.
