Hi all
Yes, another thread about shrink issue on dashboard probably due to the sunlight ( in Paris ... )
It's a small shrink for the moment, it can be more easy to fix it, but not in place

so, anybody have a technical guide about how to remove dashboard ?
I am annoyed / freaked out about airbags

Thank for your help

From an older shop manual. Looks complicated, but at least you can see the many steps.

Thank you BeerGuy

OMFG it's a single part, and it seem to be much more complicated to remove it
It's a beautiful day for crying

How can i soften leather ?
Do you know a glue, not thickness, that can be injected by syringe (not sure for the exact term) ?

Thank you for your help

I don't know a proven repair treatment. Although, you might check around Paris, as there should be leather upholstery repair specialists that might be able to fix before it gets worse.

I had the leather pull away slightly from the window and the dealer replaced the whole leather piece (under warranty). They did have to disassemble part of the dashboard and I know they removed the analog clock, because when I picked it up it would not synch with the digital clock. So, either an experienced auto upholstery shop or a dealer. Do it right, because you will be looking at it all the time. Bon chance.

I’ve been reading this thread with interest. I’m 99.9% sure the dash in my 2017 Ghibli is plastic and not leather. Ditto door trim. Is leather only used on particular variants, or on cars sold in specific markets?

The leather dashes would shown as "extended leather" on parts list usually an option or standard with sports / premium tiers.
