06 RL - Garnish Assy. R FR Windshield Side - unglued

Just last night coming back from Chicago on I-94 my wife noticed on the right side of the windshield trim piece unglued and was bit flapping; parked on the side, got out and noticed that I can place back the trim into its place but it is not as firm as the left side (driver side).
I imagine it unglued itself over the time and needs to be glued back.

Note: I believe the windshield was replaced before as the sticker says pinkelton or something like that; anyhow, it is possible that this piece just unglued or was not fixed properly when they replaced the windshield.

What is the best way to fix this? Glue it myself or go to body shop and let them handle with their glue (honestly don't see the difference but anyhow)...

Thanks All!

There should be no glue involved with these pieces. The windshield fitter has broken the rather flimsy clips that hold that trim in place, or at least that's what happened to me. They have since supplied me with a replacement side fitting but I've not bothered to fit it yet as a bit of thick sticky tape wedged in the groove seems to be holding at the moment.

Same thing happened to me several months ago. I use 3M double side tape and it works so no more flapping when I go pass 60 MPH.

Did you use 3M tape the whole length or just at the spots where the fitters are. I definitely see top two were plastic and kind of look worn out / broken... bottom two look metal and pretty stable.

Thanks!

Mine was firmly fixed at the bottom, so I packed tape around the plastic molding that slots into the groove for the top 6 inches or so.

Completed the work needed - here is the photo showing half job done ...

In yellow square I placed more 3M d-sided tape and than where the circles are I had 3M tape cover both sides (one piece tape) so when I pushed it in it stays... I reinforced this thing so there is no way it will ever flap

I know this is an old thread, but, both of my windshield trims (right and left) came loose at the top. The now flap when I drive. I had the windshield replaced in 2015. The OEM parts will cost me $350 at the dealership. I can't seriously pay that much money for some plastic. I can not find any used ones online, so since my car is now 12 years old, I would like to try the 3M tape method. I can not open your previous pics. I know this is a long shot, but could you post them again? I believe my only broken clips are at the top, close to the roof on both sides.

Thanks!

Teresa

The side garnish is about $95 from DelRay OEM Parts.

But if the garnish is not broken itself, you can buy just the clips $6-7.
