    Default No Slip Dashboard Mat Removal.

    Hi All, Don't know if this is the right section if not mods please move.

    I have had one of those non slip plastic mats on the top of the dashboard for some while, it has been stopping my PDA from flying around and has done quite a good job at it.

    However the sun this summer seems to have melted the thing into the dashboard has anyone any idea how to get it off or what solvent to use?

    At the moment trying to prise it off is ripping the thin grey plastic of the dash, and only bits are being ripped from the edge where it has come off, its becoming a mess, any help would be appreciated.

    I know I am going to have to cover the area somehow as it seems to have already done significant damage.

    thats a real shame mate,

    the only thing i can recommend is to apply heat to the affected area with a hairdryer to see if this will allow you to slowly remove the matting

    once its lifted it may be that you need to have it cosmetically "corrected" by a smart repair dependant on what your left with

    halfords do sell a self repair kit if your feeling brave along with a dash colouring kit -which you might be able to use to mask the difference
