I think you're right Scott. The TSB says 1500 SRT8s built from June 01, 2011 through March 05, 2012 were affected.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Came outside and the carbon above the glove box on the 2012 was on the floor sucks I gotta jump through hoops not to get it fixed. I already fixed the doors myself this is something I'm not really willing to fix since it should be covered.

Just had the same thing happen to my 2012. We only have 1 part lifting away. It's the drivers side of the steering wheel. You don't really see it unless you are the driver but it's really frustrating. Hopefully the replacement doesn't take too long to get here.

Still a great car and we have a smile every time we drive it. I just wish the fit and finish was a little tighter

I got a call from my dealer. The replacement parts are in. They suggested i wait 'til he temperatures get warmer so the door panels are a little more flexible to prevent damage. Sounds like a good plan to me.

I don't think it's just heat related. Mine warped at 8°F. I'm guessing it's just crappy adhesive and/or residual stress in the carbon fibre causing it to warp.
