    Angry Just broke broke bit of my dash

    I borrowed a 4ft 20kg wrecking bar from work to assist me removing some roots from a hedge i cut down in the garden. Was out all morning so left my keys with one of the lads to stick it in the car for me.

    Finished up and jumped in the car (completely forgeting the above) and was driving along about to pass a t junction when some silly cow in shoots out in front of me without looking. I hit the brakes very hard then nearly crap myself as there is a loud bang. My mate had put the bar in the boot and through the load hatch in the back seat and put my jacket over it and when i braked it shot through and hit the dash.

    It hit the stereo surround cracking the bottom of it, snapping the plastic surround of my pioneer head unit, pushed the stereo back , popped the hazard switch out and the dummy switch where the heated seat switch would go ended up in the back seat!

    Could have been worse it could have went higher and through the windscreen or hit the main bit of the dash.

    Main face of head unit is on and its all working ok so i will need to but a replacement single din dash surround and a pioneer bit.

    Will have a look at taking it apart and fixing later and get some pics, just not got the patience at the moment.

    Very true mate. If i had remembered it had been put there i'd have moved it as it was an accident waiting to happen really. Just trying to find all of my small screwdrivers and stuff to go inspect the damage!
