front passenger seat frame bolted to car frame too posteriorly?

At least 3 to 4 inches more posteriorly than the driver's seat...Therefore, my newly purchased Tesla backseat floor mat does not fit. There is a groove in the floor mat which wraps around the inner seat frame but the groove on the passenger side is not deep enough because of the very posterior seat frame. Anyone else have the same problem?

I had a similar issue with my Lloyd mats. I don't know if it was 3 or 4 inches, but it seemed like it wouldn't fit. I found that with some finagling and careful tucking the mats would indeed fit just fine.

No amount of finagling or careful tucking will fix this problem. It seems the passenger seat was bolted down without any regard to lining up with the driver's seat.

@rterry - May I ask what brand of mat you bought? I know this is all discussed on other threads, but if there's an issue with a particular brand, I want to avoid it.

This is Tesla's own new backseat mat which has been on backorder. I don't think it is the mat. I think it is my car.

@rterry - Your might well be off whack. Take it to service and see what they have to say.

@Geek EV- will talk with service tomorrow.

"posteriorly"

I came into the thread just for that.

Posteriorly.

Move the seat forward and it should fit . I had the same problem at first but realised the the track moves.

Politer than many alternatives.

Avoid the draft aft.

lol I'm surprised I never heard that before

Posteriorly, a medical usage.

yes, physician here...

I didn't bother looking up whether the word was "officially" real or not. I had preferred not to know. Now the mystery is ruined.

Could have said "caudal" to confuse people even more.

As far as the OP, my Tesla rear mats fit fine and I have not noticed any asymmetry between the two front seats.

The opposite of "anteriorally".

Thanks gorsak...that solved the problem...so simple...

That explains why my "tucking" worked for me then. If the tracks move there must be a small gap under them. I didn't know that either!

All seats are posterior to the posteriors that fill them.
