IT holds the controls for our car, but did you know the dashboard was initially designed to shield mud?
Originally the dash board was a piece of wood attached to the front of a horse-drawn carriage to prevent mud and gunk splashing the driver while the horse trotted along.
The name came from ‘dash’ as in it to splatter or throw up debris from the wheels of the carriage.
In today’s society the dashboard is no longer a mud flap, it’s the control panel of our car, holding the steering wheel, temperature control, lights, music sat nav – everything!
Like any car component, however, dashboards can have problems. You may need an entire replacement panel, or certain instruments are giving you grief like the speedometer or the fuel gauge may be faulty or your warning lights may be failing.
Perhaps your steering wheel and column are on the blink or your radio has packed up or your air vents aren’t venting anymore.
