How to realign the lid

My Late 2012'' macbook pro retina's lid is mis aligned. With the lid closed, the left side and front right of the display jut out a bit. Basically the display is pushed diagonally some how, maybe like .5mm, but because of this the when opening and closing the lid there's a little friction and a popping sound like the plastic is temporarily caught on something.

My macbook's apple care already ran out so they won't fix it. I had the screen replaced 5 months ago (right before it ran out) due to image retention. I haven't dropped my macbook or anything, but now I need to fix it.

Anyway can someone tell me what tool's do I need? and how I go about it?

I'd take a look at this guide, steps 16-19. Loosen the screws, get it in alignment then tighten it down.
