There is an unusual gap between the speedometer plastic piece and steering wheel has anyone else noticed this?

Post a pic if you can

Kept forgetting to get a pic but here you guys go! It's not that noticeable unless you lean over the driver seat. Looks like the piece was supposed to be attached to 2 clips but isn't or the piece is bent from the heat, either way, some sort of manufacturer defect.

Thank you. I don't have a 2020 Explorer to check that but to me it seems like something is out of alignment.

Something is not snapped down properly. I pulled up on the rubber seal around it and unwrapped it on accident. I just realigned and snapped it back down.

You can see the 2 snaps exposed.

I tried to realign it and snap it back into position but no luck. You had the same gap? Mind posting pics?
 






Definitely that's not correct you should notify the dealer to correct that on the next maintenance schedule
 






Can anyone share pics of their cluster gauge From that angle?

Yeah my 2020 XLT looks just like that. I think that was the cause of the random clicking sounds I heard from under the dash during the winter. I'd post a pic but it's in the shop for a tranny replacement - after 3266 miles...
 






Noticed this gap in the center display today. Is there supposed to be a tab in the center to help keep it from sagging? Couldn’t find any signs of broken plastic, though.

Unrelated issue, but noticed this gap in the center display today. Is there supposed to be a tab in the center to help keep it from sagging? Couldn’t find any signs of broken plastic, though.

Nope, I removed my lower trim piece to see if I could fix it. It is extremely flexible and nothing to really hold it firm in there.

There is an identical picture like that floating around here somewhere. ;)

Your post and subsequent ones were moved to this thread. Thank you Dsle5403.

That's a simple fix DYI. Yes it should not be like that, but you too need to do is much it back in. That part is removable to access the screws for the screws.
