Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

I just searched to see if this wasn't just me. My driver side vent piece was laying on the floorboard when I opened my door today. I've been at the beach for vacation and it's in the sun all day. At home it's in the shade most of the day and I think the sun just heated and warped it until it popped off. It doesn't even sit countoured to the dash. I have a 2014 with 26K on it.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Unfortunately I see this from time to time on 2012 through 2014's not sure I've replaced any on 2015+ yet but its definitely the carbon delaminating from the backing. Ive even ordered a few for customers that were still in 3/36 basic warranty that didn't even notice and where in for other issues.

So they realized and did some quality control? Are the pieces you replace pre-2015 parts or the newer pieces?

Unfortunately I dont think they have changed anything, I just think the 2015+ haven't spent enough time in the sun to delaminate yet.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

My 2012 had this defect. The recall kit comes with 5 pieces...3 for the dash and one for each door. I had the 3 on the dash replaced. I kept the two pieces for the doors stored at home. The dealer will do them for free if or when there is a problem. Apparently, the door pieces are more complicated to replace, and have not failed as frequently as the dash pieces.

So instead of replacing just my vent piece that separated, they'll replace all sections bc it's a complete kit?

Looks that way. I had a door piece replaced a couple of years ago. The dash pieces came together as a kit & the door pieces came separately. The parts were made in China.

BTW, mine delaminated in the middle of winter at sub-zero temperatures. Looks like temperature extremes (hot or cold) accelerate the delimitation/warping process caused by defective manufacturing.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Wow, these pieces really are cheap. I think lots of Mopar stuff comes from China and they slap a logo on the box.
I have an appointment on the 18th so we'll see what they'll do. I took pics of it off and then just used some trim spray adhesive on it. I couldn't take looking at it off. It stuck back on pretty good though.

Call SRT customer line and say you spent X amount for this jeep and it shouldn't be doing this. Just keep complaining, since your close enough to 36k they should help to out.
