I'm trying to get my dash gauges and radio bezel from vibrating so much but a few of the holes are broken or half broken where the metal bezel clips push into the dash itself.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I can fix the clip receiving holes in the dash so that the metal clips actually snap in and stay in?

Cheers :cheers:

Yeah man, my clips are broke off too (on the dash side). My gauge cluster bezel snaps in, but it’s loose. Been thinking bout how to repair this,.....nada yet. Durn sure don’t want to change the whole dash, just cause these plastic pieces snapped off. Anybody got a quick fix?

Just thought of an idea to use that Great Stuff expanding foam to spray a little in each position then carving out a notch for the clips. Worth a try :)

Any one know where to buy those clips? Requires 7 but I do have 2, so hard to find.

How did this end up working for you? Or did you try any other fixes? I have the same issue

I actually ended up designing and 3D printing these rectangular little boxes with holes in the center for the dash bezel metal clips to snap into then I glued them in the dash and it worked perfectly.
You must be registered for see images attach

I added the little sticks that stick out as handles so that I could have something to hold with my fingers as the glue hardened.

If anybody has a 3d printer and wants the file just sent me DM.

I don’t have a 3D printer but would happily pay you for some
