I have recently purchased a Fiesta Zetec mk6.5 in relatively good condition. However there is a crack in the lens/plastic in front of the instrument panel, image link below.

The condensation is not as bad in person as the camera made it look worse :) Not sure how it was cracked.

I haven't had chance to go to the dealer so not sure if it can be a quick fix but I've had a quick look on the internet but am unsure of whether the plastic can be replaced or repaired.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks :)

I'm pretty sure they can't be repaired and unfortunately as its part of the instrument panel you will need a new panel

I managed to get to the dealer. I was told that the instrument panel would cost £200+ and because you need 2 keys to program the new panel, that would be another £175! For a key...

Anyway I think ill just have to live with it for the time being.

Thanks anyway for the reply :)

What that's sounds like way to much and as for the key I think you can buy a blank key of eBay and have get it cut. You can even program the key yourself.

Can you not dry it with a dehumdifier or something then seal it?
