Default Winshield Gasket Problem on 2002 TL

I have a 2002 3.2 TL that is kept in my garage when it is not being used
and has less than 10K miles. While I was washing the car, I noticed that the
windshield top rubber gasket has started to part from contact with the roof
.. This results in a rippled/wavy look to the gasket when viewed from the
top side.
Sections of the gasket seem fine but, for some reason, other sections have
lifted from contact with the roof. I am not aware of any leaking so far.
Has this happened to anyone else and what is the solution.
TIA,
Don

I would run this back to the dealer. Now. Don't sign off the computer,
just go

My reply:
Thank you for your immediate and informative response. I would never have
thought of contacting my dealer as a possible solution.
Tell me, do you sit at home staring at your computer salivating at the
prospect that you can elevate your self esteem by posting demeaning,
nonsensical responses to queries for which you don't have a clue on how to
respond.
There are possible causes I can think of which may have caused the
problem I posted. Your response doesn't address any of them probably
because you have no idea of what they might be.
I did a Google Groups as well as Google Net search before my post and found
nothing.
Granted, my post was not as technically challenging and interesting as
most posts in this group but most of the responders to queries at all
technical levels are usually handled with courtesy and respect.
I apologize to the group for doing what I am accusing the poster of doing
.... wasting newsgroup bandwidth.
Don

****ing 02 car, I wouldn't lift a wrench. Not for the money that's being
paid for it. I do believe you didn't contact your dealer, as they would
have told you to come in and they would have given you possible reasons as
to why

You're an idiot. How much are you paying for this car and you have gaskets
falling apart already? If you already don't know what could possibly cause
it (heat, powerwashing, chemicals, faulty adhesive), then you should not
work on a car.

Know what? Don't take it to a dealer. Smash the windshield and have it
replaced. Then blame the windshield replacement company, are you happy
now?

You deserve any problem you get

Don,
Ignore ignorant posts.
The problem with the strip is that the inner lip is turned outwards causing
the rippled look. Lift the lip and reposition the inner lip then let the
sun's heat make it flat again. This problem is caused by washing the vehicle
and rubbing the lip causing it to flip up and get stuck on the inner lip. It
will not lead to a leak as it is just the outer lip moulding doing this.
Some models such as RL's will actually buzz when driving at highway speeds
until the seal is glued down in place.
