Hi. New Model 3 owner here. A few days after taking delivery I noticed the bottom rubbery part of the rocker panel a bit loose on the passenger side ahead of the rear wheel. Any idea how to pop it back in?

took it in for service. They found one of the clips wasnt fastened. So they fastened it back. But it was still somewhat distorted, probably because the plastic spent too much time being warped. So they placed an order for a new part. That was 2 weeks ago. Haven't heard from them since then.

I had the same issue on the passenger side during delivery. They snapped it back in right then and there and it hasn't been a problem since. There must be an issue with the clips they use or maybe when it is transported on and of the trucks somehow it gets pulled out.
