M-tech 2 adjustment

I recently replaced stock bumper with M-tech 2 rear. The vertical gap between the bumper and the body by the rear wheel well edge is just a few mm more than it was when stock bumper was on. How easy to reduce the gap? Somehow I think the two bolts at the back of the bumper will not help here. Ideas?

Thanks

there should be a bracket next to the gap. you can adjust it by moving it up or down and in and out.

I know this is an old thread but I'm having the same problem on my driver's side...

any pointers on how exactly to move that bracket? I know it's there, but I have no idea what to do with it.

My bumper is pointing out a little and is a little low right at the corner where the rear bumper meets the wheel arch. (right next to that bracket)

Adjust upwards the 2 guides which are bolted on the car's body.
