Question 2014 Jeep JK Soft Top Side Window Issue

So as you can see in the pictures, the soft top side windows continue to pop out on both sides of the vehicle. While driving on the highway it will sometimes open more and flap in the wind.

Is there any possible workaround to fix this?

I have tried readjusting the window on the Velcro by pulling it as tight as I can and it does not seem to work. I have also tried pushing that side piece in while closing the door hard to hold it. I don't recall having this issue last year either.

Any help would be appreciative, Thanks!

Are you starting the zipper about 2 inches before doing the door surround channel?

Try this:
Open the door and carefully look at the plastic door surround. Do you see the slot that runs top to bottom?
The leading edge of your window panel goes in there, not between the door and the surround!
The panel wraps around the door surround, almost like a u-turn towards the back

Wow that was the problem. I monkeyed around with it just now, after cutting myself I fit the window trim into the slot lol Thank you!

Common error. This issue pops up here every couple of weeks I'd say.
