The hole for the wiring *should* have been cut in a location where it would have been behind/under the small end tables on either side of that "across the back" sofa. It was cut (very large hole) too far toward the center on the passenger side. Normally (if the hole had been cut in the correct place) the sofa leg wouldn't have fallen into it. (And I'd have never seen it when I was looking under the sofa for something with a flashlight if it had been cut in the proper size and location).
The fix was that the leg on that side was relocated a bit inward on that back corner of the sofa, and both back sofa legs were placed down in a constructed wooden "donut" that was attached to the flooring surface to keep the sofa from shifting around.
After the sofa was altered and stabilized there was no need to do anything further with the wiring and the hole it came up through, except that, IIRC, the hole was reduced in size by a piece of plywood being placed over the existing large hole with a small notch cut out, on the side facing the wall, for the wires to pass through.
The repair guy told us when we picked it up that the side piece of both of those small end tables had not been installed either. Both were installed during repair.
As soon as I found it, (that evening) DH cut a piece of *very* thick leather over the hole with a notch cut out to allow the wires to pass through and stopping the sofa leg from falling back into the hole. That temporary fix was left in place until we got it to the dealer for proper repair.
I remember at least one person with our same model posting here that they found the same problem, and our dealer/repair guy stated he'd seen 2 more, other than ours, brought in for that same repair. He stated that since ours was the guinea pig for that repair, the other two were easy to correct.
