I took my tail light off last week and added 2 washers under the suspect mounting pin. I had backed it out a couple turns a few months ago but I didn't have washers that fit at the time. I wanted to make sure the pin wouldn't back out because of vibration so I decided to add the washers. Surprisingly, it did not look like it had moved after driving around like that for a few months, but I wanted to be sure and take care of it before cold weather hits. I haven't had any more issues with the rubbing since I initially backed out the pin, but I would recommend using a few washers as others have mentioned in this thread.
