    Is it like that all the way round and been glued down. The Dash has no seam, the bag bursts through, if the is a seam the car has had a crash and the bag has gone off and not been repaired properly.

    never ever seen that damage before without an air bag going off, but I would expect there to be a whole seam where it had been stuck down.

    Personally I would just glue it down and try to cover it with something that wont hurt too much should the air bag ever fire it at you

    Only thing I can think is that someone has pushed something into it (kinda like when you load some bits of wood into the car) and got unlucky enough to hit the corner of the dash airbag.
