Options: Go with a mechanical fastener, such as a biscuit (such as the one shown). Nothing a Dremel and some biscuits can't fix.

But if there is no real reason to avoid adhesives, given that adhesives are now stronger than mechanical fasteners in many automotive applications, I can't see why you won't choose that route.

And, it's a bit of a catch-22 for drawing conclusions about the manufacturer. A fix as simple as this exists at the owner level and the dealer level. I suspect many just identify the issue, use adhesive and move on, filtering out the noise from the manufacturers.

(But, even if all these issues float up to Alfa in Italy, do we think Alfa is making all these parts and/or updating these pieces with their suppliers? That'd be a no.)
