Surface Laptop 2 Lid not closing


New Member
Hi everyone.

My Surface Laptop 2 doesn't seem to fully close anymore. There's always a slight gap of about an inch or so when it's sitting flat. Sometimes even enough that it wakes from sleep.
I don't see any physical obstruction. I don't use any kind of accessories like a screen or keyboard protector. It does seem like the alcantara on the right side has started to separate from the base ever so slightly though. I don't notice any obvious bulge that would indicate that the battery is swelled. Keyboard and track pad still look, feel, and function properly.

Has anyone else experienced this?
