Yep, happened to the Po of my 90. He told me all about it. Mostly the fact that it is a real PITA to get back in. He lubed it up with oil then pushed it in, then he put silicon around it to help keep it in. Good luck!

I used soapy water. I would avoid using oil since it would never dry and prevents silicone from adhering propperly. I used a blunted plastic edge to help push the moldings in on all my windows.
