Jim, I replaced the bulb. Thanks for the help.
The trim piece sits flush on the shift gate. It's the shift gate that's somewhat higher at the left front corner. Out of frustration at not being able to level the shift gate in 15 minutes of trying I took a knife to the trim piece and cut a chunk out where it hits the bulb holder. The trim piece now sits flush on the wood and it's less obvious than before that the shift gate is listing.
