Bob, Pliobond works like a charm on Nikon bodies to make this repair. Many here at Nikonians have had this problem with the D700. It's generally a heat problem. For example, leaving the camera in a car, especially in the passenger area of the car in a hot summer sun will do it after a number of days that way.

Two caveats in using Pliobond.

Keep it away from ignition sources, as it has a very low flash point (23ºF (-5.00°C) using the standard Tag Open Cup method). Part of the solvent which is drying out as the Pliobond sets is Methyl Ethyl Ketone so the low flash point isn't surprising.

After the repair, while the solvent in the Pliobond is evaporating, you need to keep the camera away from ignition sources too.

Also, Pliobond is an eye and skin irritant, not too bad but an irritant, nevertheless. So you want to prevent getting it on your skin while using it, which isn't very hard (I wore surgical gloves when using it.) and only use it, and let the solvent evaporate as the glue sets on your camera, in a well ventilated area.
