Default Rear vent window problems

Anyone experienced the rear window losing its seal at the A pillar? I
had the car tinted years ago and they totally dorked it up and somehow
patched it with some sort of adhesive... well years later its loose and
the damn window fully pops out when you close the adjacent door.

I bought new seals for both vent windows and will replace but need some
advice on how that A pillar area is supposed to join up to the vent
window... Any help?

BTW... I had my windshield replaced for the third time due to pitting
and they totally dorked up the interior right by the felt covers at the
dash... gooped adhesive in there (its visible as I drive) and totally
hacked up the felt collar things removing the old window. I was gonna
recover those in some faux leather material when I do the headliner but
now I'm afraid those bastards are glued in place! I called and bitched
out the shop but just to make me feel better... no way I'm letting
those monkeys touch my car again. Teaches me for being a cheap bastard!

The A pillar is the one at windshield. The B pillar is the one you're talking about (I think).

Do you mean the weatherstripping (rubber attached to car frame) or the weather seal (rubber attached to the window glass)?
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ZOMBIES.

Default My bad - I mean B Pillar

Thanks ACEYX... good catch... My issue is the attachment point for the rear vent window where the window is the only point where its connected when the vent is open. Pops all the way off if you push it out.
