Default Re: slant window windshield won't close all the way

Did you have the glass replaced?
If so...make sure the arc matches the filler strip.
In the event it's only rubbing at the centre that means they either changed the arc when pounding in the glass OR maybe it's not seated in the groove and actually pushing the channel downwards OR the glass may have the wrong arc. (just throwing out some ideas)

If you use silicone on the upper seal (or anywhere on your car) the surrounding metal will eventually rust ... maybe not in your lifetime ... maybe in just a couple years ... but silicone sealer accelerates corrosion.
I would suggest butyl sealer.
