Rubber trim around front windshield

I have a 2011 JGC Overland. The rubber trim at the bottom of the front windshield on the driver side has warped, resulting in a gap between the trim and the windshield along a 3 to 4 inch section under the wiper blade. Dealer said to keep an eye on it to see if debris collects in the gap. I am debating whether or not to insist the trim be replaced, considering it is not a large gap and fearing the cure will be worse than the disease. Has anyone had this problem and has the dealer successfully replaced/repaired the trim?

Re: Rubber trim around front windshield

I believe that I did read about this is on this forum awhile ago and the owner wanted it replaced. Sorry I can't remember details.

I had the same problem and the dealer did replace it but the new one is warping as well.

6 months, 9400 miles and no warp. That is weird.

Re: Rubber trim around front windshield

Colorado Springs? Arizona? Doesn't seem to be related to ambient heat, at any rate.

Wind during high-speed driving pushing up on the seal?

I took mine to the dealer today, and the dealer took pictures to send to Chrysler. While there, I examined the trim on 10 JGCs and found warped trim on 4 of the 10, one pretty badly. I also took a look at a Durango and noticed its trim was warped. So some JGCs have the problem and some don't. It must be a function of the way the part is installed at the factory on any particular unit.

Re: Rubber trim around front windshield

I just got mine replaced today .... and it looks a lot better .. the rubber does not looked so dried out. I guess I will have to wait and see in a month or two to see how it looks then.

Re: Rubber trim around front windshield

Mine looks fine after about nearly 10 months.

Any pics of the warped trim?

Use the 'Go Advanced' button under the box where you can input a reply. Then there are more options for managing attachments such as uploading jpeg files.

Re: Rubber trim around front windshield

the windshield doesn't need to be removed for this piece to be changed out, correct?
