Well i got ripped on ebay.
Ordered the 05 dash and it was advertised with the heat and ac controls, 4x4 switch, power point and headlight switch.

It arrived today and no headlight switch and no 4x4 switch. UHHHHHHHH this agervates me to no end.

Anyone dealt with this before ? I do not get much off ebay so not really sure how to go about dealing with it.

I had an issue where what I got was not what was advertised. I contacted fleabay, they have a method to do that but I forget how it's done, snoop around their site for it. They will take care of it. Can you like the ad? I'd like to see what it said.

I tried going back to the ad and it said the seller has not updated or reposted the item.

I hit the contact seller and sent a nastygram. Basacally telling them i did not recieve what was advertised and that was unacceptable. I suggested a full refund and seller pay shipping back.
Or they send the correct missing items.

I will look on ebay as you suggested Mark. It just really aggravates me to no end.
Could have been an honnest mistake but even the photo of what i was purschasing all was included . When i opened the box there was a auxillary fuel sticker on the dash along with some other warning sticker.
It was used which i was aware of but even the photos did not show that.

When you bought the thing you should have gotten an E-mail congratulating you on your purchase, which would include a link to the ad. Additionally, on your fleabay account you can go to your purchase history, which will include a link to the ad. While the ad is no longer available to the public it is still there.

Before raising the roof you really want to comb that ad and make sure that you didn't overlook part of its description.

I've been through the return/replace/refund processes several times with eBay, and it's always worked out well, though it is frustrating.

Be reasonably patient, and don't assume the worst or approach the seller with that kind of attitude. Nothing wrong at all with voicing frustration and unmet expectations, but honest mistakes do happen and things do sometimes go wrong without it being an intentional "cheat".

just contact the seller, been there and done that many times (every thing I buy is through ebay usually, unless its cheaper on amazon or locally) ive had times where things were either broken or missing parts, and I just contact the seller, and tell them something like "hey I just wanted to let you know this issue has happened and would like to know if we might be able to resolve it, or if not just for future reference" (or something along those lines.


Remember you will get further with honey then you would with using salt. If it truly was advertised as coming with the AC control unit and any thing else, just be nice and let them know the item may be missing parts and you would like to know if there is any way to resolve the issue.

99% of the time the seller will work with you to fix the problem and get you the entire order.

If I want to do this swap, would my AC ducts (E99) be too big? I am thinking possibly, but it is also hard to tell from the picture too...(more interested in swapping the bezel for one that is a nicer looking piece)

Mark and everyone else.
Sorry i got delayed on the project.
I got everything squared away on my parts.

Laat weekend it rained all weekend and i had no way to paint the dash to match my interrior. To humid as the painting will be done outside.

You can see form my other thread BAD WATER LEAK what i woke up to monday morning.

Im going to try and get the dash painted this weekend. Next weekend shes going into the body shop for new windshield and some mild body rust from the bad windshield moulding.

Give me a bit and i will keep everyone up to speed.

I know it can be done and i will try to take pics which i always forget todo.
