Dash trim comming off

Recommended Posts

Dash trim getting dislodged from under the vents - this is not a Taurus, but I had seen the problem on many cars. If I push it back in, it comes out, like it is "shorter" than what it used to be.
What can be done?

Take out windshield. Take out defrost grill. Reglue the dash trim down. Put heavy sandbag down to hold it. Then put back together.  Or try to work with it without taking glass out - maybe take dash out.

 

check out a 2000-5 DTS they are bad

I was looking at taking the dash out, it's an extensive job.

Is there a recommended glue for this? Maybe I can reach with a long vacuum tube attached to the nozzle - if doesn't solidify too fast?

How do you usually remove those vents? It's a Hyundai, but I assume they are all similar...

Those vents usually are snapped into place - may need to see if you can find used vents on eBay to see if screws also hold them in
