My 2007 does not have an adjustment. Inspect yours to see if it has an adjustment nut. If not I would replace the switch.

Some switches are held in with rubber gourmets. They tear and don't hold the switch in place any longer. I'm not sure if your particular vehicle is mounted in this way. If it's mounted with bolts then it's probably the switch.
