Thanks.
Since they are just going to throw the original dash into the trash anyway, before I dumped 3k on a new dash I would try precision injecting some automotive fabric adhesive(make sure its automotive that will take the heat) into the lifting areas. if you use an ultra fine needle you may be able to slip it into the leather without the hole being to noticeable or try sticking it under the threading if its near there. I would not use very much adhesive the last thing you want is that stuff oozing everywhere as you are doing it. the hard part might be finding some type of weight to hold it down in those areas and angles while it dries. It certainly would not hurt to try if they deign good faith coverage and your next step is buying a 3k dash.
I did something similar with lifting fender flares on my summit except I injected emblem adhesive(I would not use that in this case it dries to stiff). worked out well flares are still in place with no issue.
here are the syringes I bought, id use the tiniest ones possible for what you are doing.
here is a type of adhesive that may work, its a spray but you may be able to fill the syringe with some. it should be good because its meant for headlines so shouldn't stain or dry to stiff. or if you can find the right stuff in a tube that has a little more viscosity to it may be good also.
