Default Help: Chrome trim on console peeling... Part number?

I looked through Sewell's online catalog and could not find the part number. I was wondering if anyone knows the part number or if this part can be replaced? This is not my car picture but just a reference to show you what I am exactly talking about.



Any help would be appreciated.

If you mean that one exact one used in the F-Sport models, Sewell has it but it's going to cost a few hundred dollars.

Part number can be seen once you add the one you want in the car. If it's another color other than the one Sewell lists you have to look in the diagram to find the one you're looking for.

aggatek,

I believe that part is integrated as cannot be replaced as a separate piece. Maybe Jeff Lange may know more.

If this is the case, you have to replace the whole thing. Try the re-chrome solution first up above.

mines started to peel as well. i could feel the edge was rough and thought it was just dirty. After looking at it closely I saw the chrome looked wavy. My warranty just expired a month after I finally took time to look closely at it during the day.

You have to replace the entire panel around the shifter, the chrome is not available separately.

Thanks for the help. I actually went to the dealer and they would not warranty it due to " Normal wear and tear.. I didnt even want to get in an argument with them cause of it...

Not sure if i want to chrome it again since the interior will be CF soon. Maybe ill just sand it down and get it painted.

This is a $2.5k dollar part. Have anyone found a reasonable solution for this concern that appears as a very common problem? Lexus bails out on it and I find it bad. I bought my car new never slept one day outside the garage, never without solar protection and for this to happen and Lexus expecting you to pay for clear poor product is bad.

I don't think this is a common problem; this thread is 2 years old, and I don't recall seeing many, if any, others. This part does not cost $2,500.

It may not be a common problem, but mine is doing the same thing! I think I'm gonna look into a DIY solution (as it's just trim, I can't imagine it's an integral part of the assembly itself). Anyways, if I do get around to fixing it and the results are acceptable I'll post a DIY on it, though I'm gonna keep searching the interwebs for a little while.
