2001 Buick LeSabre Question: Dashboard
Answer #1todays tech December 03, 2010, 19:41Journeyman
I had the same problem with the same car. I tried to glue and used over a hundred pounds of weights to hold down, let sit for four days. First day in the sun and it pealed back up but looked way worse due to the streched glue. I ended up removing the dash and riviting the pad down, has held but does not look the best, the actual dash had shrunk back about an inch and a half.

Thanks for the response. It might be best just to leave it alone. I can't even figure out where to begin removing the dash. I did take it to the dealer, but of course they wanted to replace the entire dashboard for $1250.00. If I could get the vinyl part off, I might be able to snap it back on correctly. I'm pretty sure the dashboard wasn't properly snapped together on the assembly line. Thanks again for your help.

I emailed you also.
I want to make it stop pulling away and have it look respectable.
A few years ago, the buick dealership did something for it and it was OK for a few years.
They are closed now and I could not find out what they did.
Thank you so much in advance.
