I came back to my car a couple of weeks ago after leaving it parked when at work to find the windscreen seal has separated from the glass below the passenger wiper. See below:



Any idea what would cause this and how to get it fixed?

There was a letter from Scottish Water placed under my passenger wiper but I couldn't read it as it had turned to mush, I contacted them but they've said nothing and if I want to make a claim, I need to prove it was them.

I don't know how it happened to you , but after a disaster of a windscreen replacement where the fitters b** *red up my windscreen surround I may be able to help.
The scuttle trim below the windscreen consists of several click together parts , and it looks like yours has for some reason unclipped it self. Pressure on the bit that's proud should click it all together hopefully.
If you open the bonnet and have a look you can see the rubber trims at bottom of screen have to come off as well as the wipers , then I think its one plastic rivet and the scuttle assembly eventually unclips, but at this stage you probably don't need to remove the whole scuttle trim as the above tip should work.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Bill, I'll have another try tomorrow.

I managed to click the plastic bit next to the holes back in but the rubbery bit didn't go back down.

I can't see from your picture, but is there a large gap between rubber and screen?
Auto Windscreen's (Un) Trained Gorilla ripped all my trims off, and damaged the rubber on the scuttle so it didn't contact the screen in places -- they had to replace the scuttle trim (About £150 ) plus the side trims also about £150 each. Unfortunately I think the rubber bit is bonded onto the scuttle trim- it was a year ago so can't remember!, but if you remove the scuttle you may be able to see. I had to partially remove and refit my scuttle trim after the Gorilla got to it,(no he didn't even put it back properly ) ,reasonably straightforward, note where wipers contact screen so you put them back in the same place.
Good luck !

Thanks for the details, yeah there's a gap about a fingers' width between the glass and the rubber
