Dash Panel Issue

Wed Jul 12, 2017 3:52 am

Hello,

I have an issue on the drivers side of the dash where there is a raised panel near the small window. I have taken it to the dealer and they attempted to replace it with a new piece and the same issue still occurs. So the dealer wants to now replace the raised panel again and the white piece near the headlight control. I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if so, how was it resolved.

Thanks!

How is the alignment of the dash as compared to the door panel? It has been noted that there seems to be quite a few units where the dash is not correctly centered (mine is in that group).

Mine also looks like that. There are a few other similar places as well

I'm having the same issue, on the same panel as yours. I went to the dealer but they weren't able to repair it. I need to go back when they'll received the part.

Looking at the dash, it looks fine on both sides. All the panels look fine except for the raised part. You would think that Chevy would just make shorter clips for this or something. But my concern is that the dealer orders the parts to replace the raised part and the white part and still it is an issue but only worse or something. They stated that they talked with technical support at Chevy and that is what they recommended doing.

Mine is the same way, as were others on the lot when I got it. I pushed the panel down a little, then got more comfortable with it after adjusting my expectations. Probably not what you want to hear, but it's how I get along.

Update:

I took it to the dealer last Thursday. They had the car until today. They had to replace the raised part, the white part with the vent and the part on the small window. Everything said and done, it looks better. Is it perfect, no but it is acceptable. There still a slightly raised area near the speaker at the windshield. But the raised part is now locked in and not moving around. I will take updated pictures later on this week.

Thanks for the update, looking forward to your pics. I just picked my Bolt up on 08/05 and it has that same issue (slightly raised panel on the driver side).

The panel is down flat but does raise at the end a little towards the windshield. It is also locked in there as before I would be able to pull it up with my fingers. If anyone has the raised issue at the end and was able to get that part fixed, please let me know. Please see pic. Thanks!

Wow, there's still a visible gap between the part and the lighter plastic near the steering wheel. That looks slightly better than mine. It looks like it would click down, but it doesn't.
