Dash Alarm status indicator. Cover?

Is there a cover for the dash alarm indicator? Mine shows white plastic with a section of
the dash exposed, maybe a 1 1/4" by 3 or so inch area.

I believe it would be 996-552-181-04-A03 (black). It's about $68 retail, so I would suggest contacting Woody to see what he has available.

Did you check under the seats? Hopefully it fell off and made it's way there. There's two tabs on the bottom that break easily. Even with good tabs it doesn't seem to snap back in and stay too easily.

Thanks guys. I'll check under the seats. Mine should be leather covered so, I'm guessing it's going to be pricey to replace if it isn't under the seats.

Found the cover, someone had stuck it in the storage compartment over the engine covers.
You're right though, it doesn't click into place well at all.

You're right and finding one wrapped in leather will be next to impossible. I say put two small dabs of caulking where the two tabs are on the front and put it in place. Let the caulk dry and you should be good to go. The caulking will hold it in place but it should come loose if you ever need to remove the cover.
