Cracked vinyl on dashboard replace or repair ?


If you really like the car, replace the dashboard. Or there are car specific " carpet type covers" you can buy. Always use ARMORAL on your new dashboard. Doing this, I have never had one crack.

Dashboard


No one is going to replace a cracked dashboard on a vehicle that is 9 years old, free of charge.
Direct sunlight (UV light) will hasten the drying of just about everything - but the damage caused is not limited to just the sun. Vehicles that are sealed up tite (windows all the way up) also contribute to the problem. Regular cleaning and treatment with products designed to combat the problem will help. parking in shaded areas will also help. Since your dashboard is already cracked, the damage has been done. There's little that you can do now outside of preventing additional damage from occurring.
I expect you're going to have to live with the problem until such time that you replace the car. It's not what you want to hear, but "it is what it is." Maybe, the manufacturer will recall the car due to a problem identified during manufacturing, but after 9 years, it is doubtful this was found to be a problem. try another dealer if you want.
Good luck!

My air conditioner blows air out on top by the window and on the floor but not in the middle on the dashboard. What part do i need to fix this and where is it located in the dashboard or under the hood?...


  • If the AC/heater air control doesn't work, you most likely have a vacuum line broken. All the air flow doors in the heater system are vacuum operated and without it the air will blow out of the windshield defrost vents. The common place for a vacuum line to break is under the hood where the lines pass near a hot area. The vacuum lines are normally a rigid black plastic tubing about 3/16 inch in diameter. They run across the engine compartment fastened to the section just below the wipers and air vent. The tube goes through the dash, usually near the steering column. When the tubing has been hot for long time it becomes brittle and cracks or breaks. Trace this tubing looking for a crack or break. The easiest repair is to cut out the broken section and replace it with rubber hose of the correct diameter. The hose needs to have an inside diameter that will fit snugly on to the vacuum tubing.


    Thanks for using FixYa.

We have a 2004 RX 330 Lexus with just 24,000 miles and we are the origional owners. Our dashboared has cracks all over it. We have used only Lexus products on our car.We do not understand how this could...


don't park it in direct sunlight. the sunlight does not know how much the car cost and will cause the dash to dry crack and split on a 400 dollar falcon too.

you have to go whole hog and spend over 100,000 if you want a non cracking dashboard.

My themostat housing is cracked and causing my car to over heat


Replace housing, thermostat & gasket & coolant. A broken housing is the same as having a blown hose, no pressure. Fix it right and soon, Chrysler products do not react to overheating well and can get expensive to fix the longer you let it go.

Blower air just through defroster vents, not front vents


The problem is that the plastic lines that the air flows through get frail and cracks and breaks.What happens is when the hose breaks you loose vacuum and the system reverts to defrost mode.You should be able to see it from under the hood on the passengers side.You will have to find the area that is broken and then go to the parts store and get some rubber hose that will fit over the plastic hose.Take a piece of the plastic hose with you so you can get the right size hose to fit over it.This just happened to my 97 Astro van.I found the broken hose and repaired it with the rubber line and is working normal now.Hope this helps.Let me know what you find out.Good luck.

My 2004 dodge ram 1500 with a 4.7 the AC blows cold but it barely comes out the vents as if something in the dash is not opening?


Check, under the hood, all vacuum lines. Loose, cracked, melted. WIth the engine running, wiggle them around, and listen for a hiss.
