Overland leather dash issues
 
Hi folks,

I just picked up a very lightly used (manager's car) overland and upon bringing it home noticed there is about an 8 inch long air bubble where the leather has come unglued from the dash. It's right behind the instrument cluster binacle. Has anyone had any issues with this? Taking it for a warranty repair but I'm afraid they'll have to take the whole dash apart and then the car will creak and rattle after they put it back together.

This is my first jeep and apart from that, I could not be happier. Nicest truck I've even driven.

I've read of them replacing an entire dash for that kind of problem.

Let's see what your dealer says.

The only issue I have is with the stitching reflecting on the windshield. I hope they work it out for you.

I have a 2012 Overland and this happened to me last year. Chrysler replaced the entire dash.

Ok cool. Have you had any issues with creaks and rattle in the dash since? I'm scared that the fit and finish will fall apart after the dealership starts tearing into it. Ugh

I don't mean to sound harsh, but what choice do you have?

Let them fix it, if it creaks and rattles after, make them fix it again.

If it is just an air bubble, wonder why they don't use a fine needle to inject glue under there?

None so far, and it's been through a hot summer and very cold winter.
I had the same concerns when this started, and thought that it would never look or work correctly ever again. I tried to glue it first on my own and even tried using weights on it after it was glued to hold it in place. None of that worked. Replacing the dash was the only option. In my case, the replacement went well, and I'm happy with the results. The dealership told me they were glad that I removed everything I could from the dash and console. Almost no one ever does this and they need to take out everything. Seats, Console, and Steering Wheel, to get the dash out.

Did they have to send a picture in to the Digital imaging so they can determine if warranty is covered? I have a 2012 JGC overland had the car 3 months and it came that way but its 22k miles so I hope they Replace it. I called dealership and they said to bring it by so they can take a pic and send it to Chrysler. Mine is not that bad yet but I know it will get worse so.
