Default Rear window Trim

The trim on the back window (rear winshield?) started to lift up. I tried to glue it with silicone adhesive but it didnt help. It got to the point where I'd be driving, and I can here the trim wacking against the back window. I ripped it off completely but now there is a space around where the window meets the car. Is it possible to replace the trim, or use something different to fill the void. I'm pretty sure it doesn't leak. In the northeast we had like 8 days of rain in a row and I didn't see/feel any signs of leaking on the rear deck.

the problem is to replace it you have to remove the window and get a new molding from GM, apperently there is a genaric affter market one you can use but i dont like genaric stuff ill do mine when i paint the car a for yourself id just let it be unless it develups a leak

I think i would defintaly go to the dealer and get a replacement seal ASAP. If it were to leak inside, you could get unwanted corrosion..

Seeing enough windows replaced, I'd think that was merely the rubber seal looking stuff that comes on the window. That being a structural window is sealed in with super stuff. That rubber piece would be there for the window guy to cut off and have the space to cut the old window out when replacing.

Im actually kinda worried about the looks of it. I mean my bonne is pretty beat already but this is one more thing that adds to its hoopdiness that I would like to fix.
