Vinyl Siding

We are installing vinyl siding on our own, we are half way done the back wall and realized that the bottom piece of siding is not clicked into the starter strip... is there a way to fix this without tearing the whole wall of vinyl siding down?
It appears that half the wall is clicked in (we used 2 pieces) the first one is clicked in and the second one is a tiny bit too low.

Thank you!

Vinyl Siding

If I understand you correctly your first coarse of siding is two pieces wide and one of the two isn’t locked into the starter but the rest of the wall is fine. If this is the case just lower the starter strip.

Vinyl Siding

somethings out of level somewhere,if your starter was level and the siding is not hooked in then your siding is out of level,just dropping the starter won't fix that
