Vehicle Fit

Our New vacuum formed plastic dash caps are a great solution. They are designed to easily install over dry, cracked and faded originals. When properly installed they look great and are very hard to tell from original. If your Benz has Automatic Air Conditioning you will need to cut out a hole for the interior temperature sensor.

Is this dash cover a "glue in place?" How would you get it out
Eric K September 6, 2016
The cover is held in place by glue. I need to remove mine as it melted in the middle over the vents. Sun damage caused it to warp & pull up. It stayed on the sides just fine but the middle is bad.
Peter W September 6, 2016
It is not designed to ever come out. These glue in caps are permanent. You would only install this type of dash cover if your current original dash is not salvageable or repairable. Does require some trimming and proper installation. Not complicated but follow directions closely.
Ryan N September 6, 2016
I had to trim it a bit to make it fit well and did not use adhesive. However, over time it does warp a little and now I regret not gluing it in as its very hard to get it to hold down now.
Richard R September 6, 2016
I didnt glue it. It fit well without glue.
Mark R September 6, 2016
Glue and specific detailed instructions are supplied from the manufacturer. The item is covered for warranty replacement if installation is performed exact to the manufacturer guidelines. These are not designed to be installed then removed later on.
Brian F September 7, 2016
Yes. My mechanic glued it in. It looks like a brand new dash.
