Hard to explain this but giving it a try...my passenger side...where the amber side marker light is...does not line up or flush with the fender...it sticks out somewhere about 1/2 inch...it has to do with the plastic warping... cold to hot weather..the car is now 6 1/2 yrs old. I know the screws from the bumper go into the body of the car...they attach or pull the bumper to the body...I have looked to move or push this area...I have taken out the screws and refastened them...the car has not been in an accident. I have seen this problem on many of our cars....any suggestions?
Hey, Mike. Rather than trying to pull things back, maybe you need to do some trimming of the base of the light or where it mounts. If you could find another marker light, try that first before trying to do trimming. Heat will distort a plastic lens over a period of time so that it will not fit properly.

That is not a big deal MM. Mine also (the liner) was never flushed with the edge of the front bumper. Mine also sits~about half inch inside the fender. I just replaced my battery and that was how it came back together... I'm afraid you are become to anal as you age old friend... You need something else to "tinker" with..

Vic..Larry came over to the shed...we took some screws out but to little avail...Larry came up with a great idea...if it works. We will put a rubber washer behind that metal locking...whatever it is called. It may help...otherwise I may have to reexamine the front bumper completely...but since the weather is getting cold...spring is waiting..
I received all the pics..thank you and yours are in the mail...figure the latest Wednesday. Thanks so much...for everything.
