2000 Scenic boot not shutting

Hi folks,

I have a 2000 x reg Scenic and the boot is quite hard to shut. I have to slam it to get the latch to lock down. Also I have noticed the right hand side sticks out a little when its closed, it is jot flush with the bodywork or tail lights like the left does. Is this a common fault? I can't see anything that looks bent or damaged to cause this.
Also, water in the wheel well. Upper brake light is loose too so will try to seal that in with something.

Cheers, Lewis

Re: 2000 Scenic boot not shutting

Could be that the boot hinges have moved slightly? and the boo position need res-setting or it might be that the car has been previously involved in an accident?
