2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

Anybody else seeing the rubber trim around the lower part of the windshield coming unglued? It looks like it was glued to the fender and is what direct the water into the drain holes.

I just noticed that on mine as well this morning after I washed and wiped it down - thinking of adding some 3m decal adhesive with hopes it resolves it.

I was going to try some silicon caulk. I wonder if they just glue it to get the rubber to mold into the right shape.

Re: 2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

Mine is lifting in a few places along contact at the bottom of the windshield. I'm getting close to 36,000 miles so I'm taking it to the dealer to see about a warranty replacement.

I had same issue with my 13 trailhawk drivers side,went back to dealer and they replaced a new one then it bubbled up at dr side in corner but after a couple of hrs there the tech realized the clips underneath were not pushed in all the way. I might add that they had to remove the wipers and some other parts to get to it. I just picked up a 14 overland hoping all is good.

Re: 2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

They need to bring back bright chrome windshield moldings. They would hide all these little problems.

Re: 2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

Mine at delivery was not flush in the center of the windshield. It is held in with clips.
I just gave it a good pop and it lined up and snapped in place.

Re: 2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

My pictures are a little too close, but the part I have coming unglued is on the left and right sides of the windshield, down at the bottom and is glued to the fenders. It seems to funnel water down into that plastic piece that runs the full length of the bottom of the windshield.

Re: 2014 rubber molding coming off below windshield

This rubber moulding has been an issue for many owners since the 2011 model year.
Im on my 3rd one now and its just beginning to bubble up again.
Its a known issue and a good dealer will replace it without question.
Good luck.
