2012 5-Door tail lamp scratching body

I've been having a strange recurring problem with my hatchback. On only the right side of the rear turn signal cluster, the fixture has been rubbing paint off and squeaking. Here's the original damage from the original cluster:

The Ford dealer did replace this cluster, but it's chipping again. It's not visible in this picture because the cluster is pressed tightly against the body (which is causing the chipping):

Has anyone else seen this problem? I don't have a problem with the lefthand cluster--there's plenty of clearance between the plastic housing and the fender. There's not on the right, and the dealer says there's no adjustment. They're looking into options, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has seen this.
