Replacing leather panel on instrument binnacle


Go to solution Solved by cdco,

Recommended Posts

I've recently acquired an Evora NA (2011) and am working through sorting out some interior bits.

The leather on the instrument binnacle panel has receded and looks pretty ropey.   Is it easy to remove this panel or do you have to remove the whole dashboard (which I'll do at some point to fit new airbag cover clips.....) ?

(Forgive the reflection of the lights in the garage!)

Sure, here you go.   I removed it last night, took about 5 seconds.....just pull up at the front edge closest to the windscreen...

From the service notes, point 2. might help....

Dave just replaced the panel on mine it has done the same , it's just velcro'd on and pulls off ... Easy as that.

Thanks, that sounds easy enough - did you retrim it with a new piece of leather or buy another one (looks like the latter...).   How much was it out of interest?

Thanks - might have to look into getting it retrimmed (or DIY job) as that seems a bit pricey to me for such a small panel !

I'd factored it in on the list of bits to sort when I bought it ... Cost Vs effort equation for me which for this added up to just buying.

That's fair enough, I've just bought a black leather offcut for £9 and some spray contact adhesive, I guess we will see how good my trimming skills are 🤣

Way better than mine no doubt ... Best of luck

have you got a picture of the underneath so we can see where the velcro is and thus where to pull and the hole in the dash.

 

Thanks.

Dave the the velcro is at the front edge (nearest the windscreen) the top edge is held in place by 2 moulded spigots so I just pulled at that front edge gently until it released... If you still needed it I'll get some pics tomorrow.
