After many posts in various other threads, LGT members have finally found a solution to the gap on the right side of the shifter surround/bezel.
After many attempts we now have a part number that the dealer can reference AND that actually fixes the problem.
It's P/N 66073AG08AWA for Taupe and 66073AG08AJC for Black,
which is in the first picture below. Previously people had been replacing just the actual shifter surround or bezel and the problem would come right back.
The gap is identitfied in the second and thrid picture. If your dealer has any doubts, have them contact the below dealers who have now fixed this problem with the above P/N. It's a PIA to replace supposedly so they may balk at first. GOOD LUCK! Please post if you have had or have this problem. Thanks!
