if your talking about the liner coming out from under the rubber ring then yeah mine too. not very often but ive had to put it back a couple times. Just the back part though the other 3 sides are ok.

There is a service advisory about this.
Tel your dealer to look up service bulletin # 23-028-12

Had my 2012 in three times as my dealer tried to apply the TSB but no luck and on fourth time they put in a new headliner which was quite a process including taking windshield out.i don't know why they think a new headliner will do better but I believe the lip behind the sunroof is thinner than mine was.

Mines going in Thursday for this. Hope they can fix it. Service manager knew exactly what I was talking about. Said he's seen it several times.

The fix for this (from the TSB) will not permanently solve the problem. I bought the repair kit directly from the manufacturer and their instructions go a step further than the TSB. They suggest gluing the velcro to the roof and liner because the normal tape won't hold up to hot/cold changes through the seasons.

I had the dealer do it the first time and it failed in about 6 months. I did it myself a few months ago and have a lot more confidence that it's fixed permanently now.

ceri - would you be willing to share that part number with me? Have this issue in my 2013 and would rather do it myself.

Thanks,

Chris

I don't have it, but if you google the TSB it should have the part number listed at the beginning. Google that and you'll probably find the manufacturer. It's been awhile since I did it and didn't bother to keep the wrapper.

Gotcha - I thought you were describing use of something other than the spacer kit. Thanks for the response.

Try rotating the rubber strip 180 degrees.....it fixed mine. Had the TSB done twice, it's a joke fix!!

Well I think my '13 is set up differently...rotating the piece 180 really doesn't change anything. There is a magnet connected to the roof piece with two spacer blocks attached. I will figure something out here.

Seriously cant believe how short that piece is cut relative to the gasket strip. Not even close.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Mine started coming apart again. Used a paint stick cut into pieces and stacked to get the right height and used Gorilla Glue. It hasn't budged since. NOTE: Gorilla Glue expands ... A LOT ... use sparingly!
