My dash on my 1997 GL is separating. Is there anything I can do? It is especially starting to get worse towards the center vents.

Wow - I was searching on this issue myself. Mine started last summer and has gotten progressively worse. Is there a particular epoxy that works best?

the epoxy that works best is the window sealer used to install front windshields. It is good because it remains flexable, but is very strong, and heat resistand.

Im sure there are comperable items that can be used. I just know this one works well.

Mine is separating right above the instrument cluster. Should I use the same stuff? What if I need to take the cluster out again???

Brad is absolutly right. Mine was doing this and I used windshield glue. Right above the instrument cluster. It does not affect removing the cluster. It glues to a plastic mold of the dash underneath. Good luck and let us know the product you used; other members with this problem will find it helpful.

Search the archives... I posted a solution to this last summer. I used 3M Super Weatherstrip Adhesive (available at any parts store) and it's still holding firm.
