warping dashboard?

Discussion in 'FX (03-08) - Interior & Exterior' started by RideOrDie, Jul 15, 2007.

  1. I was wondering if anyone's dash is warping.

    I just noticed it today and it looks like there are some slight spots around my air vents and above the radio that seem to be bubbling.

    Has anyone ever had this issue?

    I have not had any issues with mine. Might want to ask Chi.

    I guess I never paid attention to this subject on the org. Any pictures? Having taken out my dash before, I'm actually impressed with the design of the dash. Went back in solid without any creaking or weird noises afterwards. Let us know how it goes.

    I have an 05 and I've noticed a few bubbles around the passenger side vents but Im gonna wait til it gets worst before I take it in. I imagine it would be pretty intrusive for them to replace that.

    I wouldn't say I park under the sun more than normal. I park in a structure at work and it is kept in the garage at home.

    I'll snap a couple pics before the sun goes down.

    here's an example of the driver side vent...this is happening on the passenger side, as well as the top corners of the center vents...

    doesn't look that bad in the photos, but is worse in person.

    Yeah that bubbling is not normal. Is it all vents or just a few spots here and there?

    I only have it on my passenger side- but not all the way around it. Just on the top part of it.

    Looks like a bad glue job.

    the bubbling is on all the tops of the vents.
     
  15. Any updates on this issue? I've noticed a while back that my dash is full of these bubbling, especially around the edges of vents/speakers. Is it covered under warranty? I hope so because it is really annoying to see/look at.:mad:

    Is there any way moisture from somewhere is getting under and causing it to swell around the edges?

    I just bought a 20004 FX45. At the time of purchase I noticed the same problem with mine. The dealer agreed to fix it. I am in the process of scheduling the repair and will follow up with everyone once it is repaired. I will take pictures to do a before and after.

    I have the same issue. I was at my dealer today. It looks like my car has acne. The glue under the dash will mess up with sunlight. The dealer needs to replace the dash. This happens in hot areas. the dealer will be covered under warranty. Don't let them tell you its because of you. The new dashboard will fix it. I have an appointment on Monday. Hope your dealer is friendly.
