Carbon fiber delaminating

Hi All

When I bought my 2012 SRT8, the dash carbon fiber was peeling, but a warranty claim was already in place and was changed shortly after the car became mine.

Then the passenger door carbon fiber came unstuck and I was out of pocket to buy a new one. (as it wasn't under warranty).

Now the gear shift plate is coming unstuck from the corners... suffice to say, I am sick of the carbon fiber (never really loved the look, much preferred chrome, black or brushed aluminium). I have emailed Chrysler Australia with N06 (carbon fiber peeling known problem) which I found on this forum, and waiting for their reply. But not holding my breath as I have read many thats "America not Australia fixes"...

I have been looking to replace them all, but can't find anything on the net. CariD have a stainless steel cover for it, which looks awesome, but don't know if it would "fix" the carbon fiber warping or just bend the new part (and not wanting an expensive lesson to find out...).

Anyone installed it or found a billet piece to replace it? As well as the rest of the little pieces?

Any help would be appreciated.

if you pull the pieces a good c&c guy could make them for you in billet or anything else. or and off all the carbon fiber and use a aftermarket covering kit. but all covers eventually fail due to the high heat and changes in a cars interior.

In the US I have warranty, so every time I have my oil changed in the hot months I have a new shift plate put in.

If I could buy a black leather one I would just replace it that way.

Super fun!

Thanks for the info Trenton, although not what I wanted to hear....

Lol koooop, that sounds extremely tedious and painful!

I thought someone in the states would of made it by now and be slinging them cheap. Just my luck the first Gen has a much larger aftermarket scene

Just wondering is this peeling problem only on the carbon fiber version of the trim? Looking at the other models, if someone could correct me if I'm wrong, they are all woodgrain. So is that the only 2 styles in the second gen?

I know, I know Piggy. Was hoping that since its not really something under warranty but more that Chrysler has identified that it is a common problem, and have issued a notice for it, that Chrysler Australia would honor that... Has anyone had any luck with US recall notices here in Australia?

Also I can't find a second hand one (not many people wrecking 2nd Gen SRT8's yet on eBay or Gumtree or even here), so is the part common on other models? I found a '12 Charger looks very similar (the whole center console looks the same) . Is it the same part?? Anyone know?

I wanted to try and get secondhand trim pieces to play with. Condition doesn't have to be great, as I'm planning on modding them...
