Chrome peeling?

Hello all, I have a 2012 Jeep, and for some reason the chrome on the border of the cup holder is peeling. Are you any of you guys having this problem? I understand it's a small issue but if it continues it will start to look bad.

Re: Chrome peeling?

I am having the same issue. I keep meaning to take it apart and see if that chrome ring is easy to replace, but haven't gotten there yet.

Yeah I don't know why it's doing this.. May be some type of defect.. Mine is peeling slowly and I keep seeing little pieces of chrome at the bottom of the cup holder.

Re: Chrome peeling?

The dealer should replace under warranty.

I had the same concern a few months ago. However, upon closed inspection I discovered it was not the chrome peeling. It was actually a film of clean liquid (pop, sparkling water?) that had spilled and dried on the chrome. A little 409 and the chrome was like new.

It sure looked like the chrome was peeling.

Sure had me worried and pissed thinking the plastic chrome around the cupholders would peel after 10K miles and barely over 1 year.

The chrome is part of the shift bezel, and the part is not cheap - so have your dealer replace it under warranty if it is actually peeling. Best luck.
