So I took a look yesterday and noticed some scary and glaring things. First, lets go over some background. I had a period of time where I could't get heat from the HVAC system, so I took it in and the dealership with warranty in hand. The dealership told me that I had a cracked heater door and they needed to fix it by dismantling the entire dashboard. Relunctantly, I had no choice to say but "go ahead", but was fearful of any creaks and squeaks that might happen once it is re-assembled.
So the dealership "fixes" the HVAC and put the dash back together. Instantly I have heat on demand so I'm happy AND no squeaks day one or two....BUT after a week I start to hear some squeaks near the passenger side. The squeak became a metallic rattle over time. I crawl under the dash and take a poke around and finally found the culprit. I find that there is a missing screw (which I'm still trying to identify) that holds a metal bracket to the back of the dash and is rattling against another metal piece.
So I keep poking around some more and notice that there is an additional screw missing from the plastic tubing of the HVAC on the passenger side. And then I find that there has been THREE DIFFERENT SCREWS put back into place to hold the glovebox together. Really? Three different type of screws? WTF Dealership!!!!!! UGH. Now I have to go back for not only one missing screw but now these new problems. Now I'm even more worried that they will rip the dash apart again to replace any other unknown missing or incorrect screws. Thankfully its under warranty, plus they already did shot work once as it is.
