Default Re-attaching rear bumper protector pad

The adhesive on my bumper pad wore out and I'm looking for an appropriate adhesive to re-attach it. Any suggestions/recommendations ?

Any hardware store, you want the RED BACKED "exterior" two sided tape. (The tape itself is black, but the roll will appear red in color in the package)

Thanks for the tip! Is the tape made by 3M, or some other company?

I had the "cosmetic" portion of the bumper replaced about 2 years ago after a mild accident. The body shop re-attached the protector pad with some kind of clear adhesive after I reminded the service rep someone forgot to put the protector pad on the new bumper. Needless to say, the clear goo didn't last very long.

Now I have an excuse to hand wash my car - I don't want to attach the pad to old glue & dirt!

3M or Scotch either will do. Just make SURE it is for "Exterior use"

Make sure you prep the areas where the tape makes contact. Alcohol should remove any wax or residues that may cause it to have poor contact.

A hot glue gun would work nicely as well.
