Can you post some pictures of the problem?

If the trunk lid is actually bent it will likely need to be replaced, if its straight its possible it is out of adjustment.

Open trunk. Remove carpet that goes over trunk hinge bolts.

Locate the hinge bolts..they are BIG..I'm guessing around 15mm or so, there should be 2 on each hinge, they are adjustable as far as left or right adjustment goes and side to side.

there is also and adjustment where the hinges attach to the car from the trunk lid.

Finally if the trunk is not closing all the way or not latching right you can easily adjust the latch that is located on the decklid itself. it has about 1/2 inch of adjustment you can perform.

Again posting pictures of the problem would be very helpful.

Saw it personally a few minutes ago. Not too bad, but needs a new trunk and hinges, and needed tails already anyway.
