2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: The A-Pillar Dangle

So this happened. I found it like this when I got into our long-term 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE last night. I don't know if someone was overly enthusiastic with a door slam, or it just spontaneously disassembled. Either way, this is unusual.

I tried to gently press the plastic piece back into place, exercising caution as the A-pillar is marked indicating there is an airbag in there. No Joy -- the small tabs aren't catching on either side of the plastic.

It doesn't interfere at all with driving, so we may just leave it until the next scheduled service.
