Am I missing something? Windshield trim?

Looking at the top of the windshield, outside, from above, I can see the edge of the glass.

Is there supposed to be some sort of trim up there between the body and the glass??

I have been looking all over the site for a pic of this area, but none to be found.

I really don't think that I am the only one tall enough to see this area.

I will try to add a pic of the area tomorrow.

Thanks,
SIG

Oh crap, that is what I was afraid of.

I haven't had to worry about rain yet, just snow here, but I am glad I have not run it through the car wash.

Thank you.

I got out out to a couple of dealers today, and found a couple of recent XKs A couple of '09s and an '07.

Both '09s were sans trim over the windshield, while the '07 had a strip similar to the picture above.

I am not sure if they changed this over the years, or if the '07 had a replacement window, but I am a bit more comfortable with what my dealer was telling me when I asked him this morning.

Just thought that I would share.

Regards,
Sig

your probably right as mine is an 07. the 06-07 had them, if i remember correctly they had some problems with wind noise coming from the windshield so they probably change the design in the later years

Or, could it be a Sport vs. Limited thing?

I am assuming that if this was a real problem, someone would have piped up with the answer.

I honestly have no idea why the difference, but if it's normal, I will not worry about it.

One less thing, ya'know?
