Discovery Tailgate alignment and rear light cap issue

Post by iyakawon » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:57 pm

Does anyone have an tailgate/bumper alignment issue that may cause the rear tailgate light cap out of alignment?
I recently found my car has this issue. The right side of light cap looks like it is not installed well (see attached photos), and then I found the whole tailgate is slightly higher on the right side. I brought my car to the service center, but they say tailgate/bumper/light cap/hitch are all installed correctly. Just wondering whether anyone has similar issue like me.

Thanks.

Not had this issue. But its obvious that the light cap is either misaligned or faulty...
