Hey Glenn, you are missing some very basic info in your post that will make it easier for people to help you... Like:

What printer are you using?

Did you modify it in any way?

Do you have pictures of your problem?

    What Tommy said. But based on interpretation and some assumptions, I think you mean your fanshroud is touching your side panel.

    You could try to gently try to bend your fanshrouds down so they don't touch the bed anymore. You would be best of by uploading a picture of your printhead front-view to determine if this is indeed the case and so we can give you a reference of how far you should bend it.

    If you are going to bend it, watch out that you don't bend your rods.
