Oh crap. I'm getting visions of C5 Corvette doors. Same thing happens (to some). Not good.

The Corvette leather is vacuumed/glued on and there are little sealed holes on the back of the door skin. I don't know if it would be the same for the Camaro leather on the dash, and frankly I can't see a way to get behind it.

http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c5-g...up-how-to.html

This is a how to on that process. Someone may be able to use part of the write-up to find a fix or a DIY. Good luck OP, hope this gets fixed for you!

its definitely because its a triple curve in the area. As everything contracts and expands it pulls it away from the dash carrier, this is ultra common on alot of older exotic cars, thats why now you rarely see leather wrapped in an indent bordered by two humps. It's a bit of a cardinal rule of upholstry and surprised GM did this. I could see them TSBing this to swap in to a 10-11 dash carrier. It's just a bad idea on a dash they coulda left as it was and just upgraded the console stack, dash cluster etc. Hizzah!!!!! for my bland plastic dash lol.

Anyone else have this?
When I wipe that area of dash it makes a popping, crackling sound. I'm guessing the glue has lost its hold and it's just a matter of time before a bubble appears.

Mine visibly move around and you can see where air has filled in to the bubbles.

Yes, I was going to post the exact some thing until I found this thread. I can replicate your image 100%. Mine is bubbling in the exact same spot.

Will post photo when I get home.

I understand its just a bubble, but I didn't put my money into something new to have an inferior quality dash panel come apart. Talking to my dealer soon.

If it's a widespread enough problem, they will issue a TSB to address it. Unless you're nearing the end of your 3/36 warranty, it would be best to wait to see if a TSB comes forward. Why? If you don't, they'll just put the same inferior design right back in the defect's place. Don't know about any of you, but I really don't want a tech tearing into my interior any more than is absolutely necessary. If anything, have them draw up an invoice to show the complaint, but don't let them fix it. That will at least make GM aware of the issue. My $.02

It's probably been banned because it's not 'environmentally friendly.'

At this point in this issue I would suggest that everyone who has this get it checked over by your dealers and see what they can do for you. Hopefully that gets it fixed. If not let me know and I'll do what I can to help all of you.

Wow, I'll have to check mine. If it's common enough, I think gm may just go back to the regular '10/'11 dash on the 2014's.
