are your corner lights on the guide rails that attach it to the headlight? maybe the installer kinda missed this part when rebuildign it. also maybe some of your hinges or screws/latches are bent out of shape. or the body parts could be off.

there are screws that can be loosened and tightened to allow for movement of the headlight. Loosen them up and try moving it over some.
