    2002 Trans Am PA Tail Lamp install problem

    Hello all,

    I just tried to put a new OE replacement PA tail lamp on my car. No matter how I try to align it, there's a big gap in the upper middle section of the lamp. The lamps center lowest bolt seems to not be as straight as the original lamp is and its pressing up against the hole in the rear body panel (the old one slides right in). Has anyone else run into this problem? Can/should I bend the bolt to fit (if so how with not breaking the housing?)Do I need to drill wider hold in the rear body panel (I would rather not)??

    Return it and get another one, the tail light might be defective

    Yeah, I'm trying to get my brother to call up Chevy and put it in motion (he works at a Toyota dealer with a sister Chevy store). I think Im going to have to set a fire under him though, hes really slow on anything that is out of the "norm".
