Adjust the CATCH for the latch (the hook the latch grabs) or the LATCH in the trunk. The catch would go down, or the latch would go up.

Then adjust your tails. The holes are oversized to allow position adjustment. Loosen the nuts slightly, move the tails until they line up, then re-tighten.

The CATCH is attached to the car. Look down when the trunk is open.

The LATCH is in the trunk lid. Look up when the trunk is open. Latch up, or Catch down to close the trunk tighter. Be warned that too tight will cause the remote release to not have enough oomph to open it.

I see more of a problem with tail position than I do with trunk closing in your pics. You can adjust all 4 taillights up, down, left, and right with the oversized holes provided for them.

ok i opened the trunk and raised the latch higher and it closed alot better.. now its only off by a hair.. but i went to remove the catch and lower it aslo but i could not get those 2 little plugs that hold in in place out... i even banged on them with a hammer and a flat head and could not get them out..

the tail lights i can adjust perfectly fine once o get the trunk to close perfect. otherwise if i adjust the tail light to match then you will see a nice size gap around them.
