Latch is adjustable by loosening the bolts that secure it,and repositioning it upward a little at a time. Screw bumpers in until latch is adjusted,and loosen a little at a time until satisfied...

Is the weather seal in good shape?
Does the lid look centered to the body? (same gap on each side)

I have seen cars that have had their trunk lids forced down when a object was blocking the "arm" that bolts to the lid. Arm was bent and the whole trunk lid position changed .
