Conv boot lid edge hitting trunk lid edge on open & close

Hey all,

New problem today my convertible boot lid edge is hitting the edge of the trunk on open and chipped the paint on both parts.

Anyone know if something got out of alignment or an arms are bent and can I adjust it

Thank you

There are two bolts on each hinge. sounds like one side got loose for some reason.

Open up the boot lid and adjust the lid and tighten to the nuts
