Clio, Gap around tailgate,

Hi all, not posted on here for a while, i have a strange problem , my daughters clio has just been wrote off ,not her fault ! so we have got her another but this one is a 5 door and I've noticed there is quite a large gap around the tailgate, on the left side i can nearly get my finger between the light and the tailgate, it also doesnt seem to close fully as it is not flush with the rear lights when closed !!! the boot shuts easily enough and there are no locking or leaking problems as yet ! i still have her old clio and that fits lovely and flush was wondering if there is any adjustment on the hinges ??? any one had similar , i just hope this one hasn't had a bang as well and not been recorded.

Re: Clio, Gap around tailgate,

If you press harder on the tailgate, does the gap close up.

Are there any adjustable bump stops on the surrounding bodywork that can be adjusted.

A small adustment inwards and sideways on the striker might pull the tailgate into the correct position.
