yeah, im going to attempt to "fix it".. i dont think itll ever be the same unless i replace that peice.. but its worth a try to at least fix it and see how it goes. only a few tiny little flakes are actually missing, its bascially just cracked. but it looks really brittle like even what im guing will just probably break again...Crazy glue it back together or is a piece missing?
I've had the dash apart on our '06 a couple times lately doing some stereo troubleshooting and then install of a new head unit.
Mine's getting really brittle and I feel like if I look at it wrong it cracks. Utah sun and heat has been hard on mine.
I've had OK results with super glue but you can still see hairline cracks and a little excess glue where I repaired it.
the head unit is aftermarket, the dash piece; its actually called "dash instrument panel center upper" is oem.If thats an aftermarket one, then it should be available as part of a headunit install kit.
If its an OEM one... ask around for people that have installed aftermarket headunits.
Super Glue doesn't work on our plastic. I'm not sure about epoxy but it is worth a try.im skeptical of finding one at a junk yard that isnt itself brittle. replacement with a new one is probably best. I just tried super glue and it didnt even hold it at all. also the glue took forever to dry, which is odd as super glue usually dries quickly. im going to order some epoxy online and try that, but i think eventually ill replace that whole piece.
i've got to figure out some way to hold it tight while the glue sets, im thinking a piece of wood wedged against the ceiling and agaist the part thats stickinng out. of course now its got super glue dried along the egdes, mayge ill sand it a bit.
you can see a hairline crack down at the bottom corner of the radio bezel as well, so i got frustrated and was like f it, its gonna break anyways, and pulled on it expecting it to come right off, but surprisingly it held on to a moderate amount of force, so i left it. maybe some expoy will help it hold on for a while.
I actually don't think so. I have pulled a couple of those center pieces out in the junkyard to get behind and they didn't break - if there the part I am thinking of - remove the tray and one screw and pull hard? And believe me I had no reason to be gentle.im skeptical of finding one at a junk yard that isnt itself brittle.
