My front windshield appears to be detaching from the frame. Why is this happening?

Asked by Dec 15, 2015 at 11:22 AM about the 2008 Honda Civic LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have never been in any major car accidents but I just noticed my front
windshield is sinking or detaching from the frame of my car. It's sinking in.
From the inside of my car, you can't see anything. From the outside, you can
see some plastic parts and what appears to be wires. I'm certain that it has
been rained on. Can someone explain what is happening?

If you are the first and only owner and have never had to get your windshield replaced for a crack or anything then put a claim in with Honda and see if they will cover it before bringing it in to a dealership.
