Re-molding an already molded Zipfit liner?
I've got a Zipfit liner with Atomic Magna Hawx boots. The boot fitter put my boots and liner into the convection oven when they fitted me initially, but after a couple weeks of skiing I'm having too much heel movement - both side-to-side and a bit of up-down. I definitely don't feel like my heel is cupped in a solid "pocket." Just a couple days ago I adjusted the forward lean of the Hawx to 17 degrees (from 15), so that might have something to do with it.
There are videos for molding ski boot shells and NEW Zipfit liners (ie. boil/steam the shells, then slide your feet inside the Zipfits and the shell and buckle up). I'm not sure if this would work for Zipfits that have already been molded?

Go back to your fitter. Zipfits can be molded a ton....and adjust very quickly. I doubt it is the liners issue here....sounds more like a shell mismatch to me.
Go back to your boot fitter.
How is your ankle flexibility? Low ankle fleibility + 17° forward lean = heel lift.
If you have a large range of ankle flexibility and have heel lift you may be in the wrong shells.
If you can't change the shells, injecting more OMFit cork into the Zipfits might help snug up your heels.
If the relative length of your femur and tibia mean that you have to use 17° forward lean, despite having low ankle flexibility, then try a heel lift.
