Windshield 2001 executive

I have a corner of my windshield pulling the seal back. I just came back from a 3500 mile trip and it looks like the gap grew. There are a ton of windshield threads and I think this is a simple windshield adhesive fix not a major repair issue like others have had.

Any feedback from others?

If you're going to try to fix it yourself DO NOT use silicone.
Get something like sikaflex or something with polyurethane.

This is what I would use with my caulking gun

My windshield was replaced a couple of days ago and they used the Sikaflex version of that. Either one would be the correct choice from what I saw.

The local oreilly has the 3M and is what I've used on cars when replacing the windshields. Who in their right mind would use silicone??

To be more precise on my question is this what others have seen before a larger issue occured. This is a huge windshield with a lot of variables.

It looks like your windshield has shifted and/or the gasket is shrinking. Eventually it will need a new gasket and need to be reset.
Be careful with your leveling system as that's when most problems occur.
