My bootlid is uneven, help!!!

A little backstory. Bought the vorsteiner bootlid from IND, it is a high quality piece, I love everything about it and I get compliments on it all the time. I had IND install it. When it was first installed, it was perfect, gapped and fit perfectly, after a couple months though, the boot lid seemed to shift to the left causing a large gap on the right side, so I brought it to IND and they refit it perfectly. It fit perfect for months, until just recently it has now shifted to the right and caused a large gap on the left. I know I'm anal, but I like everything to fit perfect on the car, and I know if I take it back to IND they'll refit it for me, but I don't want to bother them all the time just to fit the trunk, especially if it's something I can do on my own.







You can see the left side is raised up above the rest of the car a bit too. Do I mess with the bolts on the actually trunk lid or the latch on the bumper?

bother us? This is our job

Let me know when you want to stop by and we will see if we need to start a warranty claim on the trunk. VRS has always been good about replacing parts for us.

Glad it was fixed. And that wasn't being 'anal' buddy; it looked horrible. Wonder why the heck it kept getting out of alignment. Either a defective part or bad installation. Hope it stays in place now . Have a great weekend gang.

Properly just needed to adjust the bump stops on the trunk. When I had mine I had a much bigger issue though.
