Wondering what the cost to fix a dash on a 2010 Ford Expedition? I ripped a piece in front of the passenger side. Does the whole dash have to be replaced or can be fixed in pieces?

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

I will try my best to help you with your question.

Can you post a picture of the rip on here with a digital camera or cell phone picture. It all depends on where the damage is.

I cant post a picture today but if you are sitting in passenger seat looking directly above glove box there is a outline box with stitching going down middle of the square outline. It is split down the stitching. not on the top of dash board either right in front of passenger. Hopefully that makes better sense.

You can try an auto upholstery shop. They might be able to fix. They might know someone who can.

As for Ford and the dealership, the whole dash panel will have to be replaced through Ford.

Check out the upholstery shop first.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
