You could try something like this:




Otherwise you will have to replace it.

Since that part is plastic and textured, I don't know of a way to repair it that will make it look stock again. You can either replace or maybe have the door panel upholstered.

I've had vinyle repair performed before, but the Tech is correct, because of the texture, the repair will be somewhat visible. You could attempt the repair, and if it does not meet with your expectations, replace the panel. Perhaps a visit to a junkyard is in order to secure a used panel?
