I asked about water leakage and the SA told me there is a seal behind the badge....how tight, don't know. There are no issues with the paint being marred or scratched. ...at least with mine. It slides pretty easily. So yes, floats above it is a good description.

I was at the dealer to have my Touch free door opening emblem badge..whatever it's called replaced as mine was very loose. As it turns out the wrong part came in....Apparently there are two kinds, depending on something???

So the technician just added an extra seal and fitted it a little better than from the factory. The badge is nice and snug now, no side to side issues.

By the way you would never guess what the hands free touch badge costs...$800 Canadian as per the SA. Unbelievable...

I wouldn't want to be able to open with the key fob in car....safety would be my concern.

My emblem is tight, does not move at all. I would take that to Lexus to get it fixed.
I repeat, I have never had the need to use my elbow however if I did I would wonder how I ever got along without the elbow or kick maneuver.
Re safety concerns, you can only open the hatch with the key in your pocket however if you use the latch you don't need the key fob at all, am I missing something here??

Not sure if you are asking a question or making a statement here?

in theory, you can't use the latch if your arms are full. Yes you are missing the point.

I am guessing that Lexus did not want the hatch to open when the fob is in the car because there could be an electrical malfunction and the hatch could pop open while driving.

My only worry with this whole hatch set-up is waiting for the day when it decides to open up on it's own/fob issue/user issue/etc, with the garage door closed!
