weather stripping help

Hey all,
Had my gen shipped recently and got it back with the weather stripping hanging down at drivers side. I'm thinking someone tried to break into it as there was a small paint chip on the chassis... probably where they slid the slimjim in. Would anyone second that?

At any rate I tried pushing the weather stripping back into the channel but it doesn't seem to want to fit back in... feels loose and I can tell there is a gap when driving (can hear street noise, air, etc wizzing by). Is there a special tool that I need to reinstall it? Or any tips for getting it back in correctly?

I'm planning to file a claim with the car shippers and have it fixed at the dealership (why not if someone else is paying for it). Though I'm sure the shipping company will try to weezle their way out of taking responsibility, so thought I'd ask about it here in case I'm on my own to fix it.

Thanks

The window seal pinches the weld of the roof rail. If the weatherstrip won’t stay attached, you need to take some pliers and “pinch” the strip enough to create tension when it’s installed. It has a metal liner that grips to the car. Make sure it lays flat, and that your window is fully sealed against it.

I don't think someone used a slim jim on it (unless they were highly inexperienced.

you would see obvious marks on the weather strip on the bottom of the window.

It could be that the car was sitting for a while and the weather strip attached to the window, then when it rolled down that part of it when with the window until it detached.

It should be fine. Just wipe a tiny bit of tire shine on the channel that the window edge sits in and push it back in place

Yeah, try lube. Not oil/petroleum based though. Think electrical pulling lube, the silicone or glycerin based sexy-time stuff, or yeah, tire shine(silicone) will work great.

I was wondering, does this chassis rail look bent? There is a paint chip on it (part of the reason I thought someone tried to break into it). Or is this wavy shape normal? Should I be concerned? I bought this brand new in 2010 with about 20 miles on it.

Has anyone seen the chassis rail on their Gen? If so, does it look similar to mine?

Thanks

^^^ Uhh, yeah dude, somebody tried to jam something in there or tried to pry against something. That is definitely plastic deformation. Interesting little riddle you have there. I wonder just what happened...

Two possibilities:
1) Someone attempted to gain access for malicious reasons,
2) Someone needed access because they locked your keys inside

Again, I highly doubt it, you would see a bunch of scratch marks around it.

If someone were to use a slim jim, it would be to unlatch the door, which would be in the door, not the roof.

Most likely a manufacturer defect, or a previous owner was trying to get something large in the car, and bumped the area.

Took it to a body shop. Turns out it's totally normal. What appears to be indentations in the rail edge are actually pinch welds. Every few inches they do pinch welds. The chip is likely a mfc defect. No biggy. I live in the southwest and not afraid of rust.
