1998 z31.9 auto shift cover loose.

Hi, slowly getting to grips with the little roadster, have the car booked into get all the oils changed. I did the motor oil myself, but its getting cold here and wont have time to do the tranny and the diff oils myself, so booked it in.

now for this post question:

The cover for the auto transmission shifter in the cockpit is loose and sits nice and flush when in park, but when in drive or shifting between 1,2 or 3 its loose. The front or back of it comes up. Ive tried to push it down, but it seems the shifter is set about 5-7 mills to high on the chassy, thus making the plastic shifter cover bulge and dislodge when shifting.

anyone come across this before, is there an easy fix?
