Loose Panels?

Here's my passenger side. Shit is nice and tight. When you press against the panel, it's secured and doesn't push in at all.


Now my driver side. Looks like shit. I've tried pressure around the entire panel to see if it would lock in place, but it doesn't. I got it close to being flush with the molding, but not the same as the passenger side.





Anyone else have this same issue? Mine is either a July or Aug 2013 build date. Limited model.

I guess I could always take it into the dealer to have them mess with it, but I would rather I fix it myself, so nothing gets damaged in the process.

How do I remove these panels safely to inspect the mounting points behind them?

Re: Loose Panels?

Is the panel actually loose? It could be the rubber gasket. It might not have been pushed on all the way.

Re: Loose Panels?

Mine is worse looking than yours, passenger normal, driver way off. 12/6/13 build, it's on my list for dealer....I think one of those plastic rivets or metal clip is not fully engaged.

Just to add, I'm in the same boat on one if my sides, pretty sure it's the drivers side. I can push it in, but the clip never holds.
