Although I haven’t dealt with this problem myself, it definitely looks like what was holding the material underneath the defroster vent area of the dash has let go of the sewn “cover” that is over the hard dash itself. I would think that removing the defroster section of the dash would allow you access to the area designed to hold the sewn cover down. Once in this area I would think that you could stretch and staple the cover back in the proper position so it would look like it came from the factory. A trick George taught me in upholstery class that became invaluable to me when doing stretch and staple work was to pull an end of the material tight with one hand while the other hand “rubbed” the loose material in the direction of the pulling hand. It seems very simple but it really makes a tremendous difference and makes it much easier to move the material than simply pulling does.
Note: The windshield may need to be removed in order to access area with stapler.
