Any idea how hard it would be to switch to the suede dash piece from the zl1? Any input if they are having similar problems? I'd hope not.

Shouldn't be hard at all. I would think sooner or later they would have the same issue

Fantastic news! If you or anyone gets a hold of the TSB number, please share and we can all go get this taken care of for good.

Mine is showing some slight bubbling but unless you run your fingers over it you can't see it. so i will wait till the final fix is in before taking mine in to be repaired.

Finally took it in to dealer. Not sure why as if when this gets replaced it will just bubble up again. Service rep said it will take a long time to take apart the dash. It got me worried that he isn't aware of this issue so I let him know that most all with this issue are 2012s with the leather trim and only that trim gets replaced. We need some fix ASAP.

Mine looks just like yours Im going to go ahead and try to get it replaced, but I am going to do all possible to try and prevent it from happening again.I honestly dont believe its the curvature causeing this. I beleive that its that change in temp of the leather/ glue when the driver gets in the car. Cause you have hot leather and glue, then the leather gets cold and contracts , then the glue dries causing the adhesive to marr and removed from tiny areas causing it to bubble??? I dunno...... But just so yall know i only take my car out once a week, but i do live in south texas so it is super hot here, so when i do take it out im gonna keep it shaded vented, and closes those middle vents!!!!!!!

I took the leather insert out of my cousins car so he could paint the air vent trim, It took all of 15-20 mins to get it out. I didnt know a hour max to do a job was a long time.

My dash is bubbling aswell

How about a DIY for removing the insert. I was thinking maybe an upholstery shop could recover it with material similar to my cloth door panels or even red leather.

I found a diy on painting the trim, it shows how to remove the dash insert... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...47#post5458547

The only tools needed are a 7mm driver, phillips screw driver, and either a flathead screw driver or trim removal tool.

Thanks, that looks fairly simple. I wonder how hard the piece to the left is to remove. Does anyone know?

I'm going to guess it's got a clip mount just like the rest of the dash. I should have guessed that's how everything was snapped in but I didn't realize it. To think early on in this thread the idea was that the entire dash had to be replaced.
