Seat computer plastic enclosure

This thing has been reset twice and will not stay put. I have been told that the plastic can be trimmed which will assist in getting it to seat properly, but they could not show me how. Any suggestions?

Thats what I thought, but two shops have said nope, just trim the thing and it will set fine. But it's too darned much bull so I guess I'll just get them off the internet. Thanks.
