The thin little trim piece on the edge of the roof line comes loose at the back, as seen in this pic (ignore the attack site warning, it's false). Anyone else have this problem? What's the best way to fix it?

Thanks.

Mine does that all the time in fact it flops out of the track all together if I go through a car wash. I just push it back in.

OBTW

You might try imgur.com to upload pics to. I didn't even try your link.

wow, your roof rails look brand new compared to mine - they're all pitted.

I just push mine back in whenever I notice it starting to work it's way out.

I've also found that it is .. bendable with caution you can put a lil bend in it to help it stay down. Your picture looks like it is popping out. Worth a shot just go easy on it.

By the look of the rubber gasket on the bottom I thought it was like a rain channel or something and thats why I didn't try to glue it.

I'll try bend it a bit and it that doesn't work maybe some glue on the sides, not the bottom, so as not to perturb any rain channel functionality.

Thanks for the input.
