    When I close my (driver) door, it makes a big "metal against metal" sound. I found out it's because the chrome trim runs into the FWD's trim. See attached picture. It didn't use to do that...

    Is there something that got out of alignment? Perhaps the position of the car when you close the FWD determines where it's going to "land" and that could be "too far forward"?

    Is there any adjustment I can try and to myself?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the info. Is that a "while you wait" kind of adjustment or is it a "drop off, get a rental, come back tomorrow" kind of thing?

    When we first took delivery, door was off and they adjusted a little. Took extra 45 minutes I think, but that was before the model 3 flood.
