Thats horse shat mate, pop the splash guard down, get wheel on full lock and make sure it's located properly. Not pulled a blob eye apart but normally bolts or clips in to the wing.
A closer pic would help.

As above. Had this with my old front wing and the problem was the crappy plastic clips that subaru use to attach the bumper were buggered so it was hanging down a bit.

Re: front spoiler help blob eye

I have the exact same problem, i bought the clips from ebay but it looks like there should be some sort of adhesive rubber holding it on to the bumper. Has anyone ever replaced this stuff?
