Help - dashboard plastic peeling

Hi all,
Because of the recent heatwave we ve had, the plastic layer of the warning button seems to be peeling off.
Any idea how to deal with that?
I havent tried anything yet as i suspect any chemical would penetrate under that layer and make it worse.



Thanks,
G

I would imagine a replacement button would be your only option, unless you put some vinyl on it with a cut out for the warning triangle

That surface in kaput ! As above (BrummyPete) says a new button looks the best plan.

Strange how it's happened though.

I have often thought this sort of thing could arise from people using a substance like Olive oil, as suggested in one you tube video, to clean the interior.

A good proprietary interior cleaner would have UV block in it to help prevent that sort of damage happening.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting you used olive oil. But it does highlight the advantage of choosing a really good interior coating.

If it’s only 3 years old, could be worth a contact with dealer / main dealer and see if they can offer any help / assistance - might be able to get it covered under warranty???

Yes we had some hot weather recently but this isn't California surely a modern car interior should cope with a bit of sun.
