The applique on my dashboard over the guages is coming up in the middle. Its a minor issue, one that I don't feel like bothering the dealer about if I don't have to (it's still under warranty). But, eventually dirt and moisture are going to get underneath and cause problems. Any ideas about how to fix this? Art, do you know how the panel is installed from the factory? I haven't attempted to take it apart yet. I historically tend to underestimate my own ability to mess things up!

If its under warranty and you mess it up further by trying to fix it will it still be under warranty?

IMHO you paid for the warranty, notify the dealer that it is happening and when sufficient faults or other nigglys have cropped up have them all repaired together.

The dealer loves warranty work. They bill the MFG. Call them and they will welcome you with open arms. This is how they make their money.

To the best of my knowledge we haven't run into that problem yet, there are plenty of adheasives out that could deal with that problem if applied right. I would contact your dealer and hopefully he will write a claim of some sorts to notify Kubota that there is a potential problem. All to often for the amount of the dollar on the claims it is easier to forget it or do nothing for the time to write it and the manufacturer has no idea they may have a problem. Don't be shy as we enjoy letting them know the problems we have with there equipment!

Is this a sticker on the dash, a sticker under clear plastic, or the whole panel? The plastic panel on my brother's BX22 dash came off. It was only stick on with double-sided foam tape. Some silicone sealant fixed it.

It's the plastic panel that fits over the gauges and indicator lights. I believe you answered my question 'double sided foam tape', which is what I thought. I was worried because sometimes things like this are attached with delicate plastic fasteners prone to breakage. I think I'll contact my dealer to notify him of the problem and get a recommendation. I'll make sure that he records it, but probably not take it in until there is a real need. That is unless he gives me a complelling reason otherwise. Thanks for the suggestions!
