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.

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.

Many G3's have this problem of the separating dash.. But I've never had that problem.

I guess it's excessive heat that causes the problem, right?
I would agree that it is most likely heat. Dries the glue and softens the vinyl. I also have this problem, but am waiting until I do a bezel/gauges mod or have more then 5 mintues to myself...

The dash in my moms car is really bad and the one in mine is starting to seperate too. I'll try the weather strip adhesive. I'll use sand bags to hold it down like i've seen in another thread.

Well, I used the Gorilla Glue today, and it seems to have worked well. But...I used a couple C-clamps and some squeeze clamps, with thick paper between the dash and the clamp, and it left a ton of marks. I'm hoping the marks will go away with time...

I just held the dash down with my hands for a couple minutes. That was almost two years ago, and no seperation since.
