Im the second owner of my 2012 SRT, the first owner had the trim pieces replaced under warranty. When i bought the vehicle it was missing two pieces and two were delaminating. Took it to the dealer, said they would take pics and send them to Chrystler.
Months went by and nothing. Took the car for a check up at the dealer and another service rep noticed the delamination and immediately placed an order, he said we had until november for this particular recall, no matter if they've been replaced. Took 4 weeks and a few days for all the trim pieces to come in and be installed. Sometimes you have to push these service guys at the dealer to make shit happen.

Heads up - there is 5 months left on this factory replacement. My 2012 has (5) or the (7) dash/door pieces popping, curling, bowing, separating and has an appointment Monday (12/9) for review and documentation...

Sorry bro, a lot of us are suffering with this issue and the dealerships overpriced parts seems to be our only outlet. We are just re attaching them with epoxy but it's far from a perfect fix.
I am getting ready to do repair on the dash pieces and the 2 rear door panels, probably the front doors as well. What I will be doing since the original shrunk up considerably is use Carbon Fiber Black upholstery vinyl, with enough excess to wrap it completely around and us based on labor and materials.. Materials being about 30 for the vinyl, Enough FRP or metal if you want, aluminum is lightweight 1/8" thick to make the new pieces to cover, 12 for adhesive and 4 to 5 hours labor flat rate per hour varies 45 to 65 per hour depending on the auto trim shop. I will post pictures of this step by step when I am doing the job.

If out of warranty you could try this ebay jeep carbon fiber.
It's only 200.00 for dash and doors

2016 GC SRT392
Canadian Model Imported to USA

You can only imagine the fight I've had with FCA Corporate, the Local Dealer, and the Local Studio that
sold me the GC SRT392.
The Studio I bought my GC from went bankrupt.

All my Carbon Trim began delaminating in September 2019.
I fought tooth and nail to get my Carbon Trim replaced under Warranty.
I guess I know the right people at FCA.

I just had every piece of my Carbon Trim replaced on this one time "good will" replacement.

That’s great news!
The Srt team does house a couple a great helpful people that have a little consideration for you and your pockets (i’ve had a few dealings w em and they were amazzing including Cf on my 12 , a tranny , sunroof sunshade) unlike the Cock**ucking Dealers that wanna just be Prick’ssss all day long!

Srt Team Ftw!

Anyone know where I can get replacement pieces for the CF interior trim pieces?? A few of the pieces I had were cracked or falling off so I removed them..

Went to reattach the good ones and can't seem to get them to fit now..


Any help will be greatly appreciated

I just replaced my with the warranty. if you take it up to the dodge dealership they should be able to look up your VIN and see if it is still under the warranty. I had no idea mine was still covered until the service manager told me.

Mine finally got replaced this week. TEN MONTHS after I took it to the dealer for pictures. I freaking HATE this dealership. I finally got the SRT Help folks involved and they got it done for me. I'm sure in 3 years or so this will start happening again but for now it looks good.

My dealer from hell took pictures back in October and never submitted a claim. The SRT people had to get me a good will exception to get it done. Got pictures take of my dash separating back in February and, you guessed it, the POS dealer never submitted that claim either. So AGAIN the SRT folks gave me a good will exception on that as well and I had to go back to the dealer once again to get photos taken. I f#cking hate this dealer and I swear that beyond those two warranty issues I will never go back there again, even for an oil change. They are complete garbage

You're my hero. I have been bitching about this on mine for every bit of 6 months. I was just dealing with it yesterday and FCA essentially told me to pound salt...and I bought mine from a Chrysler dealer. I have been in the auto industry since 1998 and I have never been as pissed off as I was yesterday talking to the FCA rep. Totally unacceptable on a car that costs this much...nevermind that the leather on the dash started bubbling as well.

Has anyone had any luck on this with a Houston area dealership? I have a 2014 and have been to dealerships with no luck so far.
Gillman Jeep on 59 & beltway 8 , you have to talk to the srt first then they will call the dealership to set an appointment, I got the carbon trim replaced and dashboard too (leathers was bubbling up)

Do you happen to have the number to set? I called The FCA and she told me the warranty had expired and I told her but the letter says 5yrs/Unlimited mileage and its a recall. She pretty much repeated the same thing to me which was useless lol.! So if you happen to have the number so I can call id appreciate it! thanks

Ugh! It finally happened to ME!!! My ride is a 2017 and I’ve been religiously using a sun shade for the past 5 years with no problems. Today, I was driving around with a friend and when he got out of the car, he pointed out that the trim on the front passenger door was lifting. I don’t know how long it was like that, but thank goodness it looked minor… just a little lifting by the door release handle. It was dark already so I really couldn’t get a good look.

I’llinspect it tomorrow and try to glue it down.
