the defroster vents up font on mine were cracked badly and would break if u touched them and my friends dad bumped the left vent on the dash and it broke into ten pieces. and when i took off the piece that holds the defroster vents i noticed some of the pieces that bolt the dash to the car have broke. so im having fun now



ill get pics tomarrow



but my question is, what do you think i should do about the pieces that bolt the dash to the car?

lol i TOUCHED the vent on the left of the gauge cluster near the plastic corner piece for the mirror, and 2 or 3 flaps disintegrated. literally.



my car is cali and texas car so the heat definitely took a toll after 14 years lol.



i just dont look at the dash and its fine

mine is the same way, I think I have maybe one bolt holding the top of the dash. bah, there's like 10 other bolts that are holding metal to metal, so I didn't worry about it. Come to think of it, that may be why my defrost vents don't line up. hmmm....



buy new


Where can I get an entire new dash, and not have it cost more than my car?
