I have an 2009 tC which I bought new back in October 2008. I noticed a few weeks ago that my c-pillars/airbag panel are sagging out of position (pictures below). It's really annoying to see them in my rear view mirror.
I don't really wanna take it to the dealer and deal with their nonsense. I was wondering if anyone can help me put the panel back into place.

Reason: forgot to post the pictures
When the "C" pillar is pulled off the retention grommet holding the panel in place breaks and needs to replaced. I recently pulled both sides and had to break the grommet to remove the panels completely. The panels are design to stay attached when/if the airbags deploy. How you go about fixing this is up to you, I used a small amount of clear RTV on the seam and held it in place with a book and yardstick. Next day perfect....It drove me crazy looking in the rearview mirror and seeing it loose.
