    Default Windscreen coming unstuck????

    hi all, just noticed something rather worrying, but was not sure where to post it.

    just went to stick a cradle onto my windscreen for my phone and as i applied pressure the bottom of the screen moved! so had a look on the out side and where the screen looks like it should be glued/bonded to the car its like a creamy white colour???? almost like the glue aint glueing any more. so had a look all the way round and can see what only looks like a whiteish milky line where the glue should be. is this normal?? maybe badly fitted? will post up a pic when the wife gets home. just rather worried its going to fall out! have noticed a kinda creaking noise when going over uneven ground as well. could this be something to do with it? cheers in advance.

    It could well be the source of your creaking but the only way to really fix it will be to remove the screen and re-bond it

    The bootlid can also creak on uneven ground.

    I'd get the screen fixed asap though as I wouldn't fancy it lifting out when your pelting along the dueller
