    I've been noticing for awhile now that the gap on the driver's side of my rear hatch seems abit large. Well, today I discovered that the support? block on that side of the trunk lid is crooked. I tried to twist it straight again, but it did not bulge easily. Also don't really see a way to loosen it and readjust it either. Anyone see this on their model S? Built in June, 2018

    I had to re-adjust mine on my 2017 S. They’re attached with a bolt and double sided tape. The tape is why it didn’t rotate easily. You can take out the center piece and it will expose the bolt head beneath it.

    I had to remove it completely and tear off the tape before I could adjust mine. Oh and be care of the little tabs. You can see that I broke one in the first picture. I didn't have a torx bit that size so I just used a hex key.
