Question cover above the oddments box

had to get my radio switches replaced today, and on the way home I noticed that the gps seemed to be loose, and vibrating. looked further, and it does not appear to be attached in the front at all. I can pull it up a quarter inch, easy. Is there a lip or a catch that is not set correctly? How much plastic do i need to take off to fix this? or, just take it back to the dealer, since they messed it up!

The only real good way to fix it is to remove the stingray - that involves the side panels on both sides. If you have a small hand and are good with mirrors you might be able to replace the missing screw without removal. Let the dealer deal with it -maybe they will be more carefull next time.

Unfortunately, that is exactly what I thought...
