Finally a topic I know something about! I'm not sure why SmokinJoe is thinking the tape is too thick, perhaps he is thinking of the wrong thing. I would recommend 3M molding tape
as my first recomendation, alternatively you can use 3M emblem adhesive
if there truly is not enough room for the tape.
The tape is very thin so I believe it would work based on the pictures, also since it is a resilient core material it will allow for some flex or if there is a gap between the surfaces.
The adhesive would probably work and is clear so that it does not show but you should still take extreme care not to get it where it doesn't need to be.
I have used the tape for a great many things beyond it's designed purpose and it holds anything from trim to car grills to taking the place of those annoying plastic clips that always break. My wonderful wife has played bumpercar with her cars my whole married wife and given me a lot of opportunity to try different materials when doing body work and these two products have save me hundreds in not having to replace components and instead just sticking the old one back on.
I would not recommend super glue or similar products because they rely on full surface contact for adhesion with very little room gaps, the emblem adhesive will forgive a less than perfect fit that usually occurs around these type of parts. Additionally they are generally not very flexible and these parts are.
Of course the trick is always to make sure both surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and free of wax, grease etc before using either product. To ensure the best possible repair I would remove the panel, it will add a couple hours to your project but the result will be better.
