None. But it could have been fixed by a previous owner.

We used to fit dashboards under warranty for that.

After the disaster trying to replace this, I better give a status update.

1) A wheel bearing is making an unpleasant noise, but not yet loud enough to locate.
2) There is a small blow on the exhaust manifold gasket.
3) The lower door cladding has fallen off the passenger side and I can't source any clips to refit it.
3a) The drivers door cladding is starting to go too.
4) I decided to give it a damn good clean and managed to knock the high level brake light off the rear screen.

Remind me, how much are MG6s making at the moment...?

A Fendt is too good for him, he'd be better of with a 20 year old Landini.

Are they FIRM-related? I reckon there must be some Bathgate via Izmir heritage in there.
