    Default Plastic Trim Bubbling......

    Anyone else had this problem,it does spoil the car a bit and i'm a tad worried that it might get bigger and eventually cover the whole facia trim.
    Grateful for any cures or suggestions

    If you put a Magic Tree type thing near that finish it just destroys it - as other guys found out.

    That's what I was thinking from the second pic, but it was the first pic that made me wonder.

    It' the piece of trim which is on the left as you sit in the car behind the indicator stalk,which is where i have bin hanging the stupid air freshener thingy,decided to change it when i took the old one off to swap it i noticed the bubbleing,never accured to me that this was the cause,allthough i have used the things on other motors,never had this prob before.

    So it's the bit that sits under the wheel, and under the stalks, and if you look on the right hand side the same bit of trim that the ignition barrel sits in?
