    Question???

    I've noticed while driving that just above the left driver interior vent a small gap between the vent top and dash edge where glow from a light comes through. Why? Is this normal? Do you all have this? Photo below.

    Are you sure? I know '13 models had a light bar there but this dash is different. There's not a similar gap on the passenger side. Think I'm gonna take it in just to be sure.

    Pretty sure, but better safe than sorry

    Okay, thanks. I got a flashlight and looked up in the gap. There is a small light bar in there. It was odd to me because it's always on when driving, and there isn't one on the passenger side. I thought maybe a gap was there from the factory and a dash light was loose or turned in there.

    Should only be on at night or when your headlights are on.

    It's more visible at night. The gap isn't as wide, so the light is more subtle on the passenger side.
