See photo. I noticed this the other day - looks like a piece of plastic trim on the bottom edge of the windshield is not installed correctly. I haven't had any windshield problems/fixes, so this likely was manufactured this way with the trim tabs in front instead of tucked behind the glass. (I took delivery of this Ascent in Oct 2018.)
- For those of you who know your way around the windshield, is this an easy self-fix, maybe just apply some downward force to get the trim tabs back behind the glass? I was hesitant to push hard on it - didn't want to crack the glass or anything before the dealer got to see that the car came this way.
- If it requires removal of the glass, do you think it's worth having the dealer do it? The trim probably doesn't keep water out (looks like a press fit with no gaskets), but it does keep leaves and debris out. I just don't want to start a process where other stuff might get broken by a fix that wasn't wholly necessary to begin with. I hadn't noticed previously it because the driver'a side wiper hides it.
- No matter what, I'll point it out to the dealer so it's not my fault, fix or no. For instance, if the glass eventually cracks here because it's unsupported or has too much force binding it, I want the replacement done under warranty.
