Nikon camera rubber cover panel pealing off....Glue recommendation?

My Nikon dslr camera rubber cover panel is pealing off.... It happened to me the same with my old Nikon. It seems to be a permanent problem with Nikon cameras. Do you have any glue recommendation? The glue needs to be flexible enough and keep the rubber panel on the metal housing of the camera....
Thanks so much!

    Sounds like it's a "painted metal" surface, which is a notoriously impermanent bond. (Nikon isn't the only manufacturer having this problem.)

    E-Bay has vendors to sell you the 3M tape that's probably similar to the factory original tape, but do be sure to prepare both surfaces first.

    Ideally, just let a Nikon authorized repair agent replace the rubber part. It will be as good as new.
