So it will fall off after a short while? No, but really, mine did not had double sideded tape. I could see the glue spots they used. I just used a different kind of glue that will hopefully hold better. Having said that, I would urge extreme care in how much glue you use. I just used an extremely small drop, didn't try to spread it. Just set the plate in place and left it alone for a day. Worked just fine.

I just bought a 6D last Thursday and the dial mode plate fell off yesterday. The Internet is awash with people reporting this same issue. I have to say that this is pretty disappointing after spending so much money on this camera.

Just give Canon customer service a call. They can direct you to who to contact for replacement. If the camera is still under warrenty, you can send them the camera and they will replace it for free. It cost me $10 to have one shipped to me. It was easy to attach once I got it.

Same thing happened to my 6D after 13 months from purchase - out of warranty, of course. Fortunately, I found the dial in the bottom of the bag. I called Canon and they will supply the cap, but not the adhesive, nor instructions on how to install, nor tell you over the phone how to do it. You can send in the camera to Canon, or do it yourself with no guidance.
For anyone who doesn't have the part and wants to buy it, call Canon USA 1-866-261-9362 M-F 8am-Midnight ET, Sat, 10am-8pm ET. The part number is CB3-9289-010. Current cost is $16.77 + $6.00 for ground shipping in US. You can order over the phone with a credit card.
Canon did not build it well, or handle the repair well. 2 demerits from me.
