    Default C5 INTERIOR PANELS

    I recently purchased a 99 C5, and I noticed the vinyl is delaminating from the backing in the arm rest area. The material is still in excellent condition. Is there an easy fix????????

    HI there,
    Unfortunately NOT.
    Panel replacement is usually the only option.

    That's one of those "nature of the beast" type things.

    The only "easy" fix that I know of might be to put some arm rest covers on them. Vette Essentials makes some nice ones that actually cover up the area.

    Not really a fix but its an option.
