Boot shut line

Hey guys.

I noticed just recently that the boot on my Clio is sitting too high on one side to the other by a small amount. The shut lines at the bottom of the boot are fine.

Basically the spoiler is above the roof line on one side and too far back from the roof as well all the way along the spoiler but greatest at the side that is also too high.
Is it just a case of removing the spoiler and loosening the two nuts underneath, then moving the boot slightly and retightening the nuts?

I think I am correct but don't want to get out of my depth as I'm not a experienced mechanic or anything but the boot seems very light so I assume I can have a go at it myself.

I also have a question about something I won't be able to tackle myself. To drive in a straight line the steering wheel needs to be very slightly to the left. Will this be a case of the steering wheel not being on quite straight or the tracking being out or something else? Tyre pressures are correct.

Thanks, Tony
