I'd start by determining what is supposed to hold the wall in place. If it's just a fill panel behind the headboard, perhaps it could be pulled into place and glued. It might be accessed through adjoining closets or nightstands. Photos would help us make better suggestions.

Don't you have a mirror there? How is that affected?
I have never looked at mine but I assume there is just insulation between that wall and the rear cap. Has the wall behind the cabinets moved also?

yes it is the wall with the mirrors on it behind the headboard. that wall is recessed from the walls behind the bedside cabinets by about 3 inches. only the one side has moved, (passenger side). hasn't effected the mirrors. its moved back about an inch. more on the top than the bottom. the side piece of wood trim and molding has moved with it also.

Probably the 'wall' was held in place by staples into the back sides of the surrounding cabinets or furring strips. Since you probably have no access from the back because of the fiberglass end cap, you'll have to pull it forward into position and perhaps screw from inside cabinets (on sides or overhead) or use construction adhesive or other glue. To pull it into position you could use a screw or a bent piece of wire or metal strip to pull it forward. You could fasten a trim piece across the top or sides to cover marks on the panel after moving it into position and glue/screw the panel to the trim.

I had a space open up behind the drawers in a night stand. I was able to screw it and then seal the gap with expanding foam insulation. I discovered it when things in the drawers were covered in soot from the engine.

thank you for your ideas. one problem is the upper half of the wall is covered with mirrors. i can remove the headboard on the lower half though. i am worried about the expanding foam because of fears that it may push the end cap out. thanks again, Keith
