BodybyFisher Posted July 21, 2007 Report Share Posted July 21, 2007 My dash pad was lifting around the center speaker on my 96 Deville. It bugged me as it ruined the look of the dash and looked damaged. I am sure that the sun beating through the windshield is rough. I noticed that the foam where it pulled away from the shell was sticky and damp. Could this edge have pulled away because of vinyl cleaners and sprays being sprayed in the area or is it just shrinkage from the heat and cold? Here is the adhesive I used, it is good for plastic, vinyl and foam, it fit the bill! Its a polyurethane adhesive and it needs to cure for 24 hours. So I clamped it for 24 hours. I don't know if I mentioned it but I had the dash pad off because I replaced the air mix actuator. So the clamping took place with the pad on my bench. I cut 1 x 3"'s to fit the sides and did one side at a time. You can still see where I clamped a 1 x 3", that indentation has since disappeared. The clamping indentations on the two sides is already gone in this photo. The area is tight and it was not pulled back at all, the adhesive feels tough, so maybe this will work! I will post a photo of it installed tomorrow Pre-1995 - DTC codes OBD1 >> 1996 and newer - DTC codes OBD2 >> https://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/gm/obd_codes.htm How to check for codes Caddyinfo How To Technical Archive >> http://www.caddyinfo.com/wordpress/cadillac-how-to-faq/ Cadillac History & Specifications Year by Year http://www.motorera.com/cadillac/index.htm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
