Default Windshield seal - help needed

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum... not sure if this is general or year-specific tech stuff.

Noticed today that along the bottom of my windshield, the rubber strip (exterior) is not sealed tight with the windshield for about 10 inches on the driver side. Is there are easy, safe fix for this?

I know the instrument cluster was replaced (due to a faulty gauge) before I bought it.. the two shouldn't have any relation should the... or could they?

2004 SE


Thanks

Ya know, I noticed that the black plastic part down where the wipers sit doesn't touch my glass anymore either. I think its been that way since I had the windshield replaced. I never thought it was a problem, is it?

Mine is the same way since I had my windshield replaced. I have all of the retainers in place, it is just that the windshield doesn't come out as far at the bottom as it did before, or so it seems...
