    Console shifter surround won't fit

    Hi guys, only just had a few small panel work touch up jobs done and also replaced my console surround that had a broken mounting clip. Since it was silver they had to paint the new part to match. The problem is when I got the car back the insert is just sitting on the rear edge of the console recess, the clips barely located and just held in place by the screws up front. No matter how much I try to force it I can't get it to move enough to let it sit down into the recess and clip properly too.

    Looking at this VX console light instruction post it shows a few areas that may be able to be adjusted. I've already tried just the two nuts inside the console bin with sliding room, the console body needs to come back about 1-2mm to let the insert drop down, but it didn't budge at all. There's also 2 screws up front under the insert once removed that face down, but I cant see many that really offer adjustment, only single area fastening. Many would need a spacer washer or similar which is obviously not right. Any ideas?

    I believe it was a custom mix, they gave back my damaged original console surround but with about 5 different silver stripes sprayed on it where trying to match. Done a good job, pity they can't assemble consoles.

    Did you get it to sit properly?

    Not yet, I've only had time to undo a few things and probe at it, without any obvious cause. Next is to pull entire dash facia and hope it's somehow now seated properly by a few mm and sitting out, because there's no other obvious thing showing.
