    Was the car involved in an accident? Either something is bent or you just need to go inside the trunk and realign everything. Everything should be held on by bolts so just loosen them and move the trunk around until it lines up properly. At least that's what I would try doing :what:.

    Right. That's why I asked if the car was involved in an accident. I don't see why the trunk would randomly be out of wack. Regardless, best thing to do is go into the trunk and try to realign everything. If it doesn't square up, something must be bent somewhere somehow.
