How to adjust rear bumper?

I just got my TTS back from the dealer after a spark plug and coil change. I noticed the rear bumper is about 4-5mm too far forward. It's especially noticeable when you look at the wheel well.

I read the Rock's thread on how to take it off, but is there a way to just loosen a few of the screws (and not all of the screws) and not remove the taillights so I can simply loosen the rear bumper enough so I can align it better?

Thanks!

Definitely. Loosen those across the top near the airbox, the one behind each light and the one at the top front behind the wheel liner. Move it until it's flush and then tighten.

If you don't have a jack I'd take it back to the dealer and get them to do it. Is a chore removing liners without removing wheels.

Thanks for the reply.
I do have a jack, but is it still very difficult to remove the liners even when the car is jacked up to open space in the wheel well? I have center locks and donít have the equipment to remove/reinstall them.

Itís easy to remove the liners with the wheels attached, just need to get it high enough for the wheels to drop a bit and create room. There are only a few screws (5 I think from memory) that need to be removed from the wheel well.

You do need to remove the rear taillights.

Here's some additional pictures:
