Charge Port Replacement - Misaligned?


Jun 9, 2018
I have a 2018 LR RWD Model 3. My charge port has been failing to open for the past few months. Mobile replaced the whole charge port but the replacement looks misaligned when closed and I noticed a gap where you can see the light from the indicator glowing through. I don't know if it is a bad installation or part but it definitely did not look like this before. Of course the first reaction from service was that it's normal :(

Wondering if anyone else has had their charge port replaced and what was the result. Thanks!
