Mmm - well apart from the risk of damage I'm not convinced that I could take it out and put it back with any more accuracy so I'll take your recommendation to not mess with it.  I'll try and find a better way of ensuring that verticals are vertical and horizontals are horizontal now I know I have this problem.

If it's just the focusing screen that is out of alignment then I don't think it should cost too much for it to be serviced by technicians, since it's fairly easy to access. Hopefully no more than half the cost of a new body.

You might also want to check if your sensor is in alignment by setting your camera to manual sensor clean and visually checking if the sensor is still square with the body.
