Glad I have a 2LT. Seen a lot of 3LTs with the dash coming apart. Went to look at a 2014 vert and half the dash was loose. It was at a Ford dealer and they had no intention of doing anything about it (understandable... took on trade, need to move metal).

It may have been that way when I bought it and just didn't notice. Windshield also had a small crack, but the dealer did replace that. I'm reluctant to spend that kind of money on a leather dash, wondering if it's just going to lift up again in 3 years or so.

It seems that it should be possible to reglue that part of the dash, so I'll ask the dealer. I'm wondering what type of glue they use. 3M super 77 is good for gluing all sort of stuff (carpet, plastic, metal, ....) and in my case for a wing slot in an EPP foam radio control glider (which is why I bought that glue).
