I have the similar issue. I think you have to replace the entire piece and it won't be cheap. I just live with it.

I think it's nauga (plastic fake leather) and you might be able to find a repair kit. Sorry, I don't know where, but I would start with eBay or google.

I'll do some searching and report back.

I never used the no-heat kits. I'd imagine this is like a "glue" for lack of a better term. I did use a kit that took heat to activate it. The kit worked well, and the vinyl I was repairing melted in seemlessly. The hardest part was mixing the right color match. If it were me, I'd hate to have to wait for a mix to dry. The heat one, once heat was applied, took about a minute or so to set up, and if it didn't melt exactly like you want, you can reheat it and work it a bit. So I'd do a heat applied kit.

you will get enough of the material to work with....so do this, practice on a piece of cardboard. See how long to heat it. Try the different graining papers. See how long it takes to cure. Then when you feel comfortable, do the dash, and hopefully it's only a 1 and done, no redo's.
