Noticed the bezel on my interior door handle (driver's side) isn't fitting flush with the door (photo). I replaced the bezel a while back, and I have now checked the screw that holds it to the door. It's tight. Do I need a new bezel? Have others dealt with this problem before? It's not preventing me from opening the door. Just a cosmetic consideration.

Is the bezel cracked? Look in near the screw.

If not, you are lucky. And then most likely the door panel or the bezel is loose. Check to make sure all it's screws are in place and tight, including through/below the plastic handle. Then try taking the bezel off (carefully) and adjusting the panel before reinstalling the bezel. Don't tighten the bezel's screw very much ... cracks easily!

Thanks for your reply. Both bezels (driver and passenger side) have cracks where the center screw is but only the driver side bezel isn't fitting properly (see photos). I guess it's time to get new bezels again as the frequent pulling of the handle must obviously have caused the cracks.
