Replacing inner windshield seal

I have removed the inner windshield seal because I wanted to paint the windshield frame.

After painting I attempted to replace seal, but it seems to big? And doesn't fit snugly.

2 hours of trying later I just drove it to work today with out it.

Is this just a cosmetic thing or do I need it? Anyone have a trick to getting it back in?

I don't have one in either. A little water might come in. Mine of it's raining and I'm on the high way I'll see water bubbles on the bottom part of my windshield. No boggy tho

Yea I tried that too.. didn't seem to help a lot.

It seemed like I almost had the size thing worked out too but the seal wasn't snug enough and when i put the windshield back vertical it fell out a bit in the top mid.

It is trim. Get a new piece, it doesn't cost much.

Don't stretch it as you install it.
