Weatherstripping between trunk lid and rear window

If this has been addressed before I apologize. Has anyone had the weatherstripping between the trunk lid and the rear window fall off? Usually I can use a plastic putty knife to push that back in, well at least on cars I have had in the past. This is just dropping right back off. I really dont want to spray tack it if its suppose to be a direct fit. Any help would be appreciated.

Have the dealer fix it. No use in messing with something when the dealer should assume all liability for fixing the problem.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

X2.

If it was a one-time occurrence, that would be one thing. Since you've tried to fix it yourself and it still falls off, it's time to use the warranty. No shame in that.

Thank you guys. I knew in the back of my head I would have to make a trip over to the dealer but I just hate doing that if its something I can do myself. I appreciate the advice.
