Hi there.
I have a 2001 BMW Compact 325Ti.
Both front door cards are loose in my car.
When I tried repairing them in the past, the plastic brackets that are stuck on the inside of the door cards that then attach to the inner door become detached. I tried glueing them back in but they just pull off.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to connect the door cards securely?

Yes quite simple fix, sand down very well those studs and use good any two components epoxy glue.

I did this overhaul years ago..馃榾

So just sand down where the old glue was and sand down the actual plastic brackets, get some strong glue, put them back on and I'm good to go?

Yes i did that way and ofcourse let it cure for a while. Also very important degrease very well!

Also before removing studs mark it first how it is installed.

Thanks for the advice.. When you say degrease, do you mean where the old glue marks were after sanding them and can I use a spray degreaser?
