    doing some spring cleaning..washing and waxing. found this.

    looks like my windshield seal is warped up. in two places. this one in the middle is the worst. i guess i have to get some windshield work? anyone else this is happening to?

    That stinks. Is yours a 2010, still under the bumper to bumper warranty? If so, have the dealer take care of it.

    Yes... it's just the cowl. Should the seal start to come off some more, don't remove it. You will get water in the cab. The seal around the window though is still good. Good luck. Take it in to the dealership for replacement if it's under warranty.

    thanks. i peeked around. doesnt seem to be leaking water anywhere, and we had some crazy rain. i'll let a windshield guy look at it. my wife is taking it in to see if a dealer will warranty it. best to send the cute one, not me, the angry one..hahah..
