Question: dashboard part cracked?

The curved part of the dash right above the steering wheel (above the area where the brake on indicator and check engine, etc) has cracked on both ends. It appears to be a seperate part that may be replaced. It lifts up because it cracked and seems as if a new one could be snapped into place. (not sure) Can you tell me what this part is called and where I could order it either on line or at a parts place. I really don't want to have the dealer obtain this for me due to their prices! Thank you for any help you can offer as I have not been able to locate this particular part online, I don't know what it is called to lookl for it. Thank you again. Sharon Kash

You don't have to order it from the dealer, but the dealer is very helpful in getting you the name and part number of what you're looking for. If you go into the parts department, they will show you an exploded diagram of the dash. You can ask for the name, part number and price and then leave and look for it online.

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
