Gap on trunk latch cover for refreshed Model S

Hi,

I recently received my 2022 refreshed Model S and noticed that there is a gap in the trunk latch cover, my other Tesla car doesn't have such gap so just wonder if I got a defect part or it is common for refreshed Model S so I can decide if I need to book a service appointment for that.

P.S. I can grab the cover and pull up to close the gap, but it won't stay there if I release my finger.


Any inputs are appreciated, Thanks!

I’ve seen this on another refresh car. Seems to be a weak spring underneath the cover as the cover can be pulled up by hand. Maybe there’s a way of tensioning the spring so it pushes the cover fully up?
