For that one I would still stick with what I thought previously, put the pronouns with the verb of which they are the object(s)...
Tu me fais la lui montrer. Tu me la lui fais montrer just seems weird.

On met certes les 3 pronoms personnels ensemble : " Tu me la lui fais montrer " ça dépend de la phrase, il y en a, on peut les mettre dans la 2e verbe comme : Tu peux me donner une feuille? bien sûr, je peux t'en donner une. voilà, ce que je voudrais dire.

Tu me fais la lui montrer. Correct

Tu me la lui fais montrer. Wrong. Me and lui are both indefinite indirect objects, it's impossible to have 2 indirect objects for the same verb.

Laura, you meant indirect object or indefinite object?

In any case, having "me" and "lui" together is not always wrong. In general, objective pronouns will be found next to each other while being objects to different verbs.

One example is the Victor Hugo piece above.

Here's one with "me lui" by ‎Joseph Fr. Michaud, ‎Jean Joseph François Poujoulat:

C'est donc pour me mettre en pire condition que je n'étais par le passé, que vous m'avez raccommodée avec lui et que vous me lui avez fait donner tout mon bien?
