Window trim deterioration on rear pic attached

I searched but didn't see this issue.

My son and I both have Taomas. Mine is 2010 and his is 2008.

Both of them have a similar "spotting" and overall bad look to the trim around the rear window.

Is this a known issue by Toyota? Is there a recall by chance?

How would you recommend fixing this?

Thanks!!

Use a "Magic Eraser" and plain water with lots of elbow grease.

Kind of looks like mildew as it appears to be on the cab also. Have you tried washing it?

Mold/Mildew/whatever it is, it also happens to 1st gens, so probably some info on how to get rid of it in the 1st gen section. I've seen a few threads on it.

Just wondering if the sun is breaking the seal down . A good cleaning and some ultraviolet protection covering the seal to protect from further damage .
I beleive Aerospace 303 is what most guys use to protect against this problem

X2 for Areospace 303. I had been using it for years on my old Taco and never had any rubber degregation. I always reapply on all rubber and plastic trim monthly. It keeps my new Taco looking new.

Mine looks nearly the same and it's been garaged most if it's life...it's frustrating as it looks like mold/mildew but it's just breaking down...
