Hi, Folks

I recently decided to replace the rusty license bracket and acorn nuts on my 2010 XC70. As I tightened the new bracket to the tailgate the right-hand threaded insert broke loose and fell out. The insert looks to be an integral part of the composite tailgate.

The only way I can think to fix this is to try gluing it back in place. I have some 3M instant glue and thought I'd give that a try. Maybe some kind of resin or fiberglass repair would be a better way to go.

Anyone else experience this? Any ideas and suggestions greatly appreciated.
