Has anybody's GU's front windscreen moulding bunched up around the top of the windscreen?

Mine seems to be working it's way up either side of the windscreen and bunching up (rippling) along the top horizontal section of the windscreen.

I have managed to work it back down a few times but it keeps going back.

Anyone else have this issue?

Now I wonder if anything had been added to the windscreen washer bottle that may have affected the rubber? I've heard that happening off my brother who drives long distance trucks who used to add a bit of dishwashing liquid to the washer water for example. Sounds like the windscreen may have to be removed and refitted to fix it properly.

I can't seem to get photos to work. I'll try the photo bucket thing. I assume it's not too hard?

I can't remember when it started but I've had the car 3.5 yrs. I know about dishwashing liquid and all that and have only ever used water. I thought it was shrinking too but by the way it is bunching up I reckon if I spent an hour I may get it back down but it seems to keep kreeping back up.

I'll try and get some photos up ASAP.

Lockndirty. This is common on gu's .See it at work all the time . If you ever put a new screen in it just get your windscreen fitter to fit a new rubber at the same time. Its not easy to get the screen out without breaking it .But can be done.
