Fresh air intake

Having a poke around yesterday I noticed that the fresh air intake gasket does not quite fit the space in the frame under the spoiler exactly, it's over to one side.


I can't see any means of adjustment. Any suggestions Gents? Just please no one tell me this must be the result of a horrendous rear end shunt of which I was blissfully unaware!

There's a couple of self tapping bolts holding the intake in place. The bracket allows for some adjustment if it bothers you. I think most are like your one though.

Same here, every time I clean the car I put it back and then the next time it's out again, has been for the past five years......
 
Thanks Chaps, one less thing to worry about. But looking at the weather forecast for the weekend up here, I think I may do some tinkering on Sunday.
