There is a service bulletin covering this problem. #09-08-110-001A

Repair covered by the 3/36 warranty if that is still valid.

I'm not sure what you guys are talking about. How about a picture, that would help!

All it is is a piece of 3/8 in X 7/16 in adhesive-backed pressure sensitive sponge rubber weatherstrip material attached to the rear self to fill the gap between the shelf and the rear window. It also helps keep the shelf from rattling.

If this material was stretched when it was applied to the shelf panel, heat causes this material shrink and work its way out.

If you are out of warranty and a do-it-yourself type person and figure out how to remove the shelf, you can probably can get an equivalent piece of weatherstrip at the local hardware store for a couple bucks.

Thanks guys for the clearification. I wonder if the 2010 and 2011 models have the same problem?
