147 GTA Airbag cover passenger side

Hi All

My airbag cover on tyhe passenger side is not flush with the rest of the dash on the bottom side of the cover. It sticks out further than the dash itself and doesn't look neat. It just seems to be the bottom bit, the sides and top section seems all flush.

A technician at a dealer stold me there is nothing that can be done since there are only two clips mon either side and not one in the middle of the airbag cover. I find this frustrating and unacceptable!

Is there anyone with the same issue and possibly a solution to it?

Many thanks!

The clips can be brought from your local dealer, they're priced them around 2.50 each and sold as a pair, and as they're sacrificial (destroyed when the airbag deploys) you will need them, as they'll just break when you lever the panel off.

There is a post regarding how to heat and bend the panel back into shape using a heat gun, but I'm not that brave.
