coupe rear hatch/trunk adjustment

Hi,
i have noticed that on the drivers side when i open the hatch/trunk the rubber gasket that seals the glass "rubs" the roof and it looks like if it keeps doing it that it is going to tear it. Does anyone know if there is an adjustment on the hinge or something so it will not get any worse.
Thanks
