    You don't really care, do you.
    I did some searches on this topic but didn't see anything, so my apologies if this is a duplicate.

    The rubber seal around my windshield came loose on just the passenger side on a road trip a few weeks ago and was flapping around like crazy. I pulled over and stuck it back in the crack between the windshield and the upright, and it seemed to fit back in snug. A few miles down the road going about 80MPH, it came loose again.

    I just had my windshield replaced about a month beforehand, and I'm wondering if this thing just snaps in place or could use some adhesive. I thought about getting some silicon or that black gunk they use on the windsheild, but I don't want to f it up.

    So, is the windshield company responsible for making sure this thing stays intact or gets replaced if damaged, or do I just fix it myself? I'd like a new one all around if I can, but it's still in great shape just won't quite stay in place.

    Fix or hassle with the windshield company?

    Make sure the rest of your truck is on the pill I guess.

    I'd call the windshield company that worked on it because they got paid to do a job, it's not like they did you a favor

    Call the windshield co. They should guarantee their work.

    You don't really care, do you.
    Ok, so making sure the rubber seal is in perfect working order is part of their guarantee normally?
