    Default C5 Plastic

    My trim is going to waste-land in the car. First, the visor mirrors went capooee and now the electric switch for the fuel door is gone.....

    It appears I will need to order a new console, the eyelits that held the switch, 3 of 4 have failed. Where to buy?


    Went to add some windshield washer fluid and the cap retaining part is going.


    This car is about 8 years old but why can't the plastic last just a bit longer?


    I am not complaining, just pointing out what is happening to my car, I just love to drive it!

    Are you the original owner?

    Those issues sound like disassembly and/or re-assembly problems.
