My 2001 Limited PT Cruiser dashboard is cracked everywhere

Customer Question

My 2001 Limited PT Cruiser dashboard is cracked everywhere from sun damage. I recently purchased a replacement from an ebay seller and it does not fit. Where can I find one that I know will fit? Is it difficult to replace? Can I do it myself?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Have you checked at http://www.car-parts.com or at http://www.LKQ.com ?

Yes replacing a dash is difficult there are alot of bolts, screws, nuts, electrical connectors, and sensitive electronics.

Some people can do this job at home, but I would need to know your skill level to say yes or no on can you do this. Removing a dash for some is just about as hard as removing an engine.

If you're confused on what to do now. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.

Thanks Moose.

Are you needing anymore assistance from me on this concern or are you pleased with my help?

Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris

HI Moose,
I purchased a dashboard cover on ebay for my 2001 PT Cruiser. It is too large. I was told JC Whitney has one that fits over the existing one. Very frustrated and I truly appreciate your help. Thanks,
Kathy
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Your welcome Kathy. It appears they sent you the wrong year model dash cover.

Are you pleased with my help?
