Driver's seat side panel separation


Apr 18, 2021
Las Vegas
I got my Model Y in June and about a week ago the plastic side panel on the driver's seat came loose. I tried to get down there and see what was going on but had no luck. Tesla came out to today and fixed it in about 5 minutes. The tech said that due to supply chain issues they had to use a cheaper connecting pin instead of a screw. He said that he has made several of these repairs, but now that I have the screw I should be okay. I asked if they would replace the other side but he said only if there was a problem so hopefully if that happens it will still be under warranty. Anyone else have this issue?
