Didnt damage glovebox, just the dash above there was visibly bruised, where they probably had to urge it back into place. I expect the marks to fade over time, its not real obvious unless you look for it. Re the spare, service manage said the tech didnt mark the spare as checked, but somebody else assumed he had, and ticked the box. All ok in my mind now.

Ah ok, that all makes sense.

I had mine done last week, wish I had read this first and had taken pictures... I have a custom tablet in the dash where the factory GPS would go, looks like they had trouble getting this out and have put some small gouges in the dash, yes they're small, but weren't there before..! Thinking they used the yellow handled Stanley dash removal tool..

Additionally does anyone have the service bullitien for this, would like to know what they needed to pull out and why. One of the drivers seat bolt cover panels was off and there is visible/tell tale marks on the drivers seat bolts too.. eg they have been touched.

Goodness me, back to the dealership tomorrow and would like to be prepared/armed, any info appreciated..

Thanks Tom. Ive been putting it off for awhile but safety comes first and the 3rd reminder is enough to get my arse into gear. Ive been putting it off along with the secondary air pump issue but my pump burnt out ages ago and even had matt to disable the code so probably no point in getting it replaced.

Had mine done a couple of months ago and unfortunately despite me taking photos before and asking them to take extra care with the dash given it is way too easy to damage they damaged it around the LCD screen surround. Two small gouges (not dents) that won't heal. I am very pedantic but decided not to pursue it. They are minor but what can you expect really the dash is like cheese.
