Side windshield trim is lifting

I bought the car with a bit of a lift on the window trim and used some silicone adhesive to keep it down. It didn't last long and now the trim got in a fight with the car wash. Other than regluing it, what is the best fix? I know it is a common problem.

Yep mine came loose after I had them replace the windshield. They fixed again and it's been fine for a couple of years now.

Should I just take some stronger adheaadh to it? I'm guessing my previous glue job + dirt in the area it snaps in is going to make a new replacement difficult

Yup, mine came loose too around 27k miles. That was four years ago. Dealer fixed it under warranty and haven't had any problems since.

BTW, the clips were broken, so the dealer ordered a new part. Maybe that's why your DIY effort didn't hold.
