    My RID prowl is damaged, the part on the door were the ball joint snaps in has split making the door unable to connect to the leg, is there a specific way to fix it or will conventional super glue do the job?

    By the sounds of it, you may need to just find a replacement part for it. Though a picture of the broken area would help figure out how fixable/non-fixable it is.

    You might be best off hunting around for a junker to salvage spares from.

    Super glue may make it work for display, but not heavy play. Gorilla super glue is what I use.

    Yea i just want the door back to normal because It is loose in vehical mode, and it just falls off in robot mode, sadly to save room on my shelves I want to keep him in robot mode. So I will use super glue then the next time i get some, thank you.

    happened to my CR Mach Alert (CRAP! :cry ), as well a few RiD Prowls (both colors) that i have owned over the years

    The problem is the doors, since they are molded in clear plastic, less flexible than your standard plastic

    If you could take a pic of the damage, maybe we could get a better idea and think of a good solution :)

    Same thing happened to mine. I got a cheap replacement Prowl and took the door from that one. If you can get glue to work, though, more power to ya.
