2012 ZL1 Dashboard Emblem

My original dashboard emblem was peeling at the edges a little bit so they ordered me a replacement.

I was surprised when they told me it was not just a sticker but the whole dash panel that they replaced.

When I got in the car I saw why, the new panel has the emblem integrated into the panel and is no longer a stick on emblem that will peel. It is SO much nicer.

If you are having the issue with the dash emblem and don't mind a replacement that is not "original" contact your dealer and have them make this swap for you under warranty.

They wont let you keep the old panel as they need to return it for the warranty claim (at least that is what I was told).

I will post pics later.

I cant really make it out but is it a sticker now integrated into the panel or is it plaque integrated into the panel?

Just wondering what # your car is because my car came with the dash panel with the emblem like you have pictured, if you run your finger over the emblem you can't feel edges.

Mine is the same way, after reading about them peeling off on the forums I checked mine. But I can't feel the edges.

Maybe a 13 dash change that was given to him instead of the 12? Those with MY13's may help us understand.

Without reading the thread, they could have done without it. It's just a decal. There are enough reminders on the car already.

My car is a 2012 and # 683 (like in my sig line )

The new panel has the emblem integrated into it, it is not a sticker or a badge. It is smooth. I know the pictures are not great, sorry for that. But I like having the ZL1 there on the dash. If you like the logo and have the earlier peeling stickers, I suggest ordering this. Of course it is a matter of preference and possibly for some, maintaining all original parts.

To each their own, just thought I would make you aware, as I thought it was a quality improvement and I like it much better.

best-
Bruce

Bruce,
A free upgrade, cool. Now I have to get up enough courage to take my car to the dealer for the first warranty repair Thanks for the heads up Bruce.

I'm glad that you posted that because I am having the same issue. Didn't contact the dealer yet because I thought they would just try to glue it back on. I'm going to call them tomorrow.

I have to replace mine also due to the letters catching the rag while I cleaned it. The "1" and the L both broke and like it was said earlier they only come on the trim part $158.00

I brought my car to the dealer with a copy of the invoice from brucedd. The service guy was really cool and ordered the part for me. Now we play the waiting game. :emoticon7:

Mine used to say "ZL 1" now it says "_L 1"

Off to my bowtie dealer for a replacement panel tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up brucedd.

It amazes me that the emblem peeling off was never caught in testing. Just crazy. At least there is a nice fix for it.

It sliced my hand open pretty good when I was just wiping it down with a microfiber towel.

The ones in my posted pics in this thread are absolutely NOT stickers. The ones on the dash panel they removed were stickers.

I suppose the point is they look the same, but the emblem is integrated and smooth.

I hope he has as good an experience as I did. I love the new panel, and honestly, was a little embarrased of the first one, as the stickers were really quite cheezy. Kudos to Chevy for making this quality improvement upgrade available!

(Now for the Dealer Service Stage II mods w/Warranty please!)

Got my dashboard emblem fixed. It is definitely a lot nicer than the old one. The emblem is embedded into the dash. The one thing that irks me a bit is that I checked my mileage when I dropped the car off (341) and when I picked up my car it had (345). I don't know if I'm too happy about that.

Picked my ZL 1 up today after the dealer replaced the dash trim piece. They used the PN shown earlier in this thread to order the part and wonder of wonders, they got the replacement and it's exactly like the old part with a D*mn cheap decal. No doubt the decal will peel just like the original. A minor item, but I was hoping for the new part. Second gripe, my car came back with 4 miles added to it and I'm pissed about that since I specifically told the service manger not to let this happen.

Cheers - Boyd
