Same issue. Dealer will fix under warranty, if that applies.

Also, my dealer recommends cracking the windows slightly in warm weather. Tough decision if you park outside.

www.heatsheildstore.com We use these from here, they fit really good. For all makes and models. It is a good idea to have one of these. They work good to keep the sun off the dash.

This is a very valuable thread I am going to sticky it so that users can reference it for this apparently common issue.

Local trim fix

A less than capable "green" adhesive was used to assemble numerous leather trim pieces to their substrates on the interior of our cars. The same base of windshield part failed twice on my 07 car. The initial failure was replaced by another OE part...when it failed again, also under warranty, it was sent out to a local trim shop. Problem solved.

I had my windsheild tinted to hopefully minimize this type of damage and to minimze the suns damage to the leather/wood on the dash . Mine has a little bit of color but you can do it clear/almost clear if you don't want any color.

Good thread, I suspect regular application of leatherique would be a big lifesaver for those of us who have to park in direct sunlight.

^^^If you're parking in direct sunlight in high temps, you really should use a sunshade. It'll help prevent shrinkage a lot better than a leather product.

The wooden panels in the centre of my DB9 dash have been sun-damaged. Any recommendations on how to remove and re-finish these?

Removal: fast forward to about the 3 minute mark, and be more careful than this "expert":

I've removed mine before, and it's really not that bad once you know where the clips are and how to unclip the nav display. Frightening the first time though!

Mine has become unattached on the driver side. Behind the instrument cluster. Any tips or instruction on removing the same panel on the driver side is greatlly appreciated!

Driver side is easy.

Pop the instrument cluster hood off (about 6 fir tree clips around the edges). Get your fingers under both sides nearest the windshield and lift up until it releases. Then move your hands toward the steering wheel & lift again. Once off there's a leather strap with one screw to remove.

Panels on either side of the instrument cluster are also only held on by fir tree clips. Just lift off.

That will expose screws holding the piece closest to the windshield (it's probably the one with leather shrinkage). You'll need a short handled screwdriver.
