Window gasket popping out

Hi Folks
The other day I noticed the window rubber seal gasket had popped out from the corner of the window. It looks to me that over time the rubber seal gasket has shrunk so it no longer fits tight around the window. I attached a picture.
How can I fix this. Can I simply buy a new rubber seal and replace the old one. I am not sure how to find the correct type. Note I am not talking about the Butyl tape that seal that goes between the window and the wall, its the more decorative rubber gasket that goes between the window and the frame (if this helps).
Thanks

I have the same problem. Have not fixed it yet, but someone posted this link, so I bookmarked it.

Ahh yes. I see. I will check what I have and see if they have the part.

Thanks

I had the same issue on my Journey. No need to replace. Open the window and start to push the gasket back into the channel and work your way around to the end of the gasket. When pushed all the way in, it almost seems to "click in". Best to do it in warm weather when it is fairly flexible. If you wish, you can also pull it completely out and clean the track before you put it back. Good luck,

I also have seen a post that suggested removing it and putting in a bucket of warm water to make it more flexible, maybe warm soapy water. Mine seem to have shrunk.

I removed mine, warmed them up then reinstalled with added black silicone at the corners, it has now stayed in.
