Default Dash 'bubble' at passenger airbag (w/pics) UPDATE Re-repaired 5/30/11

This bubble has been this way since I got the car. It looks like the padded dash material has come unglued from the dash itself and made this happen.

Any ideas how I can fix it? I'm a little concerned about screwing around with the dash sooo close to the airbags.
TIA

It's a 2010. How many owners has there been? Either way I would imagine warranty would cover it. Take it to your dealer.

Doh! I think you're right. My bad. I haven't seen my dash in quite awhile without the dash mat on there.

It's a 2006. No idea how it happened. Bought it from a dealer (used obviously)

Maybe the 1st airbag has already been deployed?

Hi Notloudenuf. The passenger airbag cover has come loose.

You can either try to snap it back into place yourself, ask the Dealer to do it, or stop by a Collision Repair Shop in your area and ask if they will do it for you (they would certainly have experience in replacing airbags and airbag covers. Trying to pop that back into place will not set off the airbags.

Too late now, but since you say it was this way since the day you got the car, why didn't you have it repaired before taking the vehicle?

Let us know how you make out.

Good luck.

I'd just take a flat head screwdriver and push it back in..should take 12 seconds.
