Thanks, Jim, that was what I needed to know. The odd thing is that I spent a good amount of time browsing your website last night and I didn't put two and two together.
What I thought was the shift trim plate sitting high in front is actually the forward left corner of the shift assembly case sitting high. I can't see how it's installed wrong nor can see how the console trim isn't right either. Any ideas?
BTW, couldn't they put the bulb to the side rather than in front of the case? It would make it so much easier to pull out the socket.
