I know most people are having issues with the driver side tail light (which is definitely the case with mine) ... but my passenger side tail light has minimal/no clearance as well and I noticed some rubbing areas on the passenger side taillight area (though not nearly as bad or noticeable as the driver side) ... At this rate I'm just going to ask the dealer to remove all 4 lights (I now only hope and pray that the fog lights are okay, lol!) so I can look at the areas during their initial inspection....

The up side is that both my dealer and regional rep (Central IL) have been polite and responsive.
