unfortunatly only the old N08 recall comes as a kit for the 2012's, 2013 and newer you'll have to order each trim individually

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Just dropped mine off at an upholstery shop. Said it should be ready by 3:30. Passenger dash piece is about half way off and a small bubble on the pass door. Warranty expired 3 weeks ago and I dont want the hassle of convincing them and waiting for a fix.

Thanks Jeep!!

Let us know bro how the shop does as we really need to start looking at other options other than the dealer. Got SRT to cover mine finally but the dealer butchered the job and broke the retaining clips for the right AC vent and scratched the living crap out of the center bezel. Was also told by 3 SRT reps that I could have the old CF piece but then they retracted. New part ordered but come on.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

He said it was one of the tougher jobs he's had in a while. The pieces fit in there so tight and they tend to warp. He didnt want to remove it as he wasnt sure it would go back on the same or that it could break. So he glued it back on with home heavy duty interior panel glue. Only had the 1 passenger dash piece coming off. $75 all fixed

Details related to this are somewhere in the beginning of this thread.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Hi, have read this thread end to end, as I discovered on my SRT the carbon fibre above the glove box has warped. 2014 model, always garaged, parked outside last Friday, temp - mid 30s, Newcastle Australia, interesting when summer really comes ! Disappointed to find this is happening ! Have sent photo to dealer, still under warranty, so shouldn't be a problem, will wait and see.

Front door CF now warping. Called SRT but since they did a goodwill on my dash piece (41k miles) they said I'm out of luck. Seriously looking intp replacing all my CF with standard WK2 inserts myself. Total bogus and what a shame that I need to deal with this on a 70k truck that's 2 years old.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

I just had my dash replaced as it had bubbles and starting to peel off near the defroster. everything went well at the dealership and was under warranty. I would recommend the dealer to take care of this for you if you are still under warranty. I also had CF trim replaced above glove box and drivers door. the originals were warping also. Dealer has done a fine job replacing these items under warranty also with no issues.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Dealer needed to photograph for warranty purpose. It only took a week for the replacement carbon fibre to arrive. Whilst in they also did the S49 Recall, really happy with the fit and finish of the new trim panel, then within a day the engine light came on ! Did diagnostic check which showed P0520 code. Dealers had vehicle for best part of a day again to replace faulty oil sensor unit, coincidence I don't know, but good that it has been replaced under warranty, as dealer said it's not an easy replacement.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Add me to the list 2014 w/ 26k miles...

CF trim left of the steering wheel below the air vent on the dash...will be calling SRT hotline...

I noticed this after they replaced my dash due to bubbling; do you think they could have messed up this part/trim piece when installing the dash? It looks like this would have to come off to do the install...

Mines going back next week for the same. They're replacing all the carbon fiber bc every door is warped now. The dash is lifting right atbthe defroster vents slightly.
Did they tighten everything back up good? I worry about a rattle from something loose when they install mine. Must smell good tho!

Leith Jeep in Raleigh was fantastic on this for me. Replaced dash and all separating fiber under warranty on my 2014. Good guys over there. Sure glad I was still under 3yr/30k - would have been pricey.
