FAQs—Chrysler Dash Cover
- My old Chrysler dash cover already looks dull and a bit dirty. What would be a good and safe trick for cleaning this cover? I don’t want it to fade easily or tear eventually.
Washing it with warm water can be a great way to spot-clean the cover. If there’s dust or small particles that have settled into the cover, these can be easily removed using a car vacuum. If you don’t want the colors to fade or the fibers or material to wear out or break, don’t use cleaners or soaps that contain harsh chemicals.
- I have this dashboard cover for already a week and I can’t it get it to stick to the dashboard. The fastener/adhesive just won’t work. Is there anything I can do first before taking it back to the store?
Don’t return it to the store just yet. What you can do is clean the surface first using mild detergent. The dashboard can also be cleaned using rubbing alcohol. Let the surface dry fully before using the fastener/adhesive. This usually does the trick. The adhesive/fastener may not hold easily because of the protectant on the dashboard. If this fails, then start calling the seller to inquire or arrange for a product replacement.
- How can I make sure that the dash cover will fit around the vents and speakers of my Chrysler?
If you want a dash cover with holes and openings for the vents and speakers, then you have to get one that’s custom fit or made specifically for the make and model of your Chrsyler. These covers are a tailor fit. They’re made with the actual dash design and components in mind, so you wouldn’t have to worry about the fit.
- How do I keep the dashboard cover from fading? I don’t want the cover to discolor easily.
Using a sun shade on the windshield will help, along with minimizing exposure to the UV rays or heat by parking the car in a shaded area, as much as possible, although some mats/covers for the dashboard will naturally fade after some time. If you’re shopping for a new cover, get one that’s UV-treated to minimize any chance of discoloration.
- I just bought a new dashboard cover for my car but can’t put this on yet because of the leftover glue stuck on the surface. What could I do about it?
Aside from adhesive remover that you can buy from the hardware or most supply stores, you may use rubbing alcohol for removing residual glue. You just need to dab a little alcohol for cleaning the surface. You can also use soap and water to get rid of the stuck adhesive. Let it dry for some time before putting on the dash cover using the fastener/tape.
- I’m looking for something practical. I want a dash cover that’s less expensive yet reliable when it comes to heat protection and in warding off light reflections. What would be a good choice for a cover?
A low-pile carpet dash cover would be a great choice if you want something practical, reliable, and cheaper than most. This can effectively block dust and dirt from the dash and can also help keep spills from ruining the surface. It can also help prevent glare as it can reduce light reflections. It gives the interior a nice, warm touch. This type of cover comes in a wide array of colors, and it’s also widely available. Looking for a good fit for your vehicle won’t be difficult.
- I’m searching for a dash cover/mat and came across several options. I want something that has a smooth feel but not that delicate that it would be hard to clean or may shrink or tear easily. What would be great options for me?
Velour is a soft material that has a luxurious look. Even with its soft, plush appearance, a velour dash cover offers good sun protection and can withstand varying temperatures. It won’t distort easily. Suede also has a smooth look and feel that it’s used as a dash cover choice for some luxury or expensive vehicles. It doesn’t easily lose its sheen or smooth feel even when exposed to heat or the sun. It’s also quite easy to clean.
