I've heard people have just glued/epoxied the dash back down to some success. It's a common problem. I bought some epoxy a while back to try and fix my own dash, but I haven't gotten around to doing it yet unfortunately.

I had mine replaced for the same problem under warranty in December 2019. What I did was print out the carfax which showed the date of the first sale of the car which is when the warranty starts, to prove that as of December of last year, it had still been covered. Yours is a 2011, so you may be out of luck, but if your car didn't sell right away, you may be covered.

I also emailed Mazda corporate on their website to ask whether I was covered, and printed out their reply and brought it to the dealer showing that corporate said I was.

Granted, none of this was necessary, I was granted the repair by the dealer without needing that documentation, but if it works in your favor, it will certainly help.

See this thread regarding SSPA9 (7 years (84 months) from the original warranty start date or April 30, 2018 whichever is later, with no mileage limitation): Dash Popped Up
