Windscreen Roof Seal Possibly Lifting?

One of the corners of the roof seal strip which joins the screen to the roof panel does not seem as tight fitting as the other side and worried about possible leaks?

Is this likely to need replaceing and how easy is it to have this strip replaced and what is the process?

That was a reported fault on early cars with the glass roof.

Get it checked at the dealers as you don't want water getting in.

It looks a simple job, likely to be done while I wait?

I would think so.

AFAIK they will replace it with a complete new strip rather than try sticking it down again.

Yes, but I think they cannot remove and replace it, I think it has to be a new strip.
