I'd be tempted just to remove the top plate and mod the bit underneath, then run without the top plate. Others may have higher OCD thresholds for the interior of cars however.....!
I'll wager you haven't used the V6. Mmm...........£500 a year before a wheel turns for that ICE. Then a nasty visit to a fuel station and get your pants pulled down for £75. You'll be...............Shell ShockedSomehow I don't think I'd get a missing top plate past the boss! I've already been warned not to tinker too much with this car.

I've also had a woman nearly walk right into me with her shopping trolley in a lidl car park. I was turning into a park beside her car (fortunately in the wider parent and child parks) and she grabbed her trolley and started pushing it in my direction whilst looking in the other direction just as I was swinging into the park then suddenly stopped with a start when she realised that a car had silently ghosted into the previously unoccupied space beside her car that she was pushing her trolley towards!
That happened on only my second day of ownership so it has made me acutely aware that I need to be REALLY super careful manoeuvring in car parks, because pedestrians (who treat the road as if it is a pavement to begin with) CANNOT hear you coming when you are moving around slowly in a park. Apart from maybe a reversing light there is NO indication that you are about to move. No smoke or vapour from an exhaust and no noise...
Eventually when there are a lot more EV's on the road through attrition people will learn to look where they are walking, but until then I need to be careful...!

Now there's a good idea...
Just beware you may then get mistaken for a lorry!
