I think your boot strut is shot on the driver's side
If the top hits the boot on the way down it is the strut
If the boot hits the top on the way up your tension straps need either replaced or shortened 4 m/m of so.

Sry for opening an old thread, but did a search and cannot find how to adjust the stowage lid from side to side. I have a 1/2" gap on driver side and passenger is almost touching.
