    Own a 9-3SS? Have long legs?

    I've run into an issue where I found my dash to be cracked around the mounting points under the fuse panel cover. A few months ago I noticed a squeak near the drivers side speaker. I tugged on the dash and found it very loose. A small aluminum bracket and some super glue and off I went with a solid dash having no idea how it cracked.

    Then one day I got into the car and cracked my knee off of the dash near the light switch. It was followed by a crack and a pop and my squeak was back. I blew out a huge chunk near the lower mounting bolt. Tonight I set off with some two part plastic epoxy and some more bracket material.

    Here is what I came up with!







    I also pulled the A-pillar airbag cover to do some squeak proofing. I will eventually get this thing quiet!

    Wow, nifty little set up you've got going there. The entire dash on my 900 will move, and over big bumps, the gauges will move a good inch or so. I'm too afraid of the brittle plastic to go searching to fix it... I've already broken too many plastic bits that I don't want to attempt the dash.
