2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Rear window dashboard

  • 61,000 MILES
Not sure if you would call it the dashboard but in the rear window dash it is disintegrating from the sun other than that car is in really good shape. How can I fix this? Is there anything to replace or cover it?
Do you
have the same problem?

I suspect you're from a southern state where sun is a bigger factor on interior trim panels. These cars don't last much more than ten years up here in Wisconsin where they throw a pound of salt on an ounce of snow. The bodies rust away very quickly, but the interiors in the cars in salvage yards often are in very nice condition.

You might do a search for "Pull-A-Part" if you're anywhere near Ohio to southern Georgia to see if they have a yard near you. All of their yards are very clean and well-organized, employees and customers are real friendly, and the prices are pretty reasonable. You can also tell on their web site how many of a year and model they have at each yard. The only things they can't tell you though is colors and sizes of parts, what options are on a car, and what has been removed already. Take your tool box, and you can spend all day there. They even provide a place to wash up. This is a nice place to figure out how to remove something without damaging it by practicing on a car in the yard. Interior trim panels are not in very high demand so expect to not have top pay very much for one.

There are many other similar yards all over the country now where you pay your buck and take your own tools. You'll pay more for any part from other yards if an employee has to be sent out to retrieve it.
