    I have an 08 Burstner T620 with a 'skyroof' over the cab. I have recently noticed that the grey plasticky trim strip which runs all the way round seems to be shrinking away from the two front corners. Has anyone else experienced the same fault? Attempts to push it back into place simply transfer the problem elsewhere. It is as if the plastic strip has shrunk in length.
    I idly wondered whether softening with a warm hairdryer would induce enough flexibility to get it back into place and held by the rubber track which should grip it at the edges.
    Any thoughts?

    it is UV damage, I have the same on the side window screwcover trims, the only real option is to replace with new.

    Damn sunshine, seems we need a health and safety review with a view to legislating against it! Too dangerous to let it operate unregulated.

    Thanks for your response.:Smile:
