Boot twisted/not alligned

Hi All,

My boot recently has stopped closing properly and stops halfway down. I then noticed that the boot is not alligned correctly. I have undone the hinges and tried to adjust it but there is much give on them. Any suggestions please. I have attached photos.

Any chance someone drove it with something large in the back and left the boot open without tying it down? Hitting bumps with the boot open and letting it bounce up an down could deform the mounting points. Otherwise, for something like that to happen suddenly with no accident would be very odd.

Not that I'm aware of. I am beginning to think it wasn't correctly aligned when built. The only reason I noticed it was the boot doesn't go right the way down when you close and thinking one of the gas struts might be faulty. Maybe i should replaced the hinges before I replace the struts

Disconnect struts and see if it closes properly without them.
