    Default window/gutter trim

    the bit that runs from the bottom of the a pillar all the way to the back of the car.

    anyway I've noticed mine keeps lifting on both sides and I keep pushing it back down, but a short trip on the motorway and it is coming out again in places. Its a newish car; just under 2 yrs, so I wasn't expecting this to occur.

    Is it normal and just one of those things to live with or is there a better way to re-seat them - or should I just complain when its in for its 2 year service in a few months?

    get some new clips for it to hold it in...it's not usual at all.... the only problem being it won't be a warranty job as that only covers body and trim in year one only

    Not covered under NetworkQ either - oh well.

    I'm assuming if its just clips it will be fairly cheap to do - but is it easy and am I likely to knacker the trim at all in doing it?

    I guess I'll wait for the Haynes manual to come out - or until it really annoys me.

    Thanks
