'02 325i rain gutter trim over rear doors

Hello, just bought a used e46 with the matte black rain gutters over the rear doors and it looks like the two pieces of rain gutter/trim must have separated from each other because there is a gap about an inch wide and I can see what looks to be some sort of adhesive on the body where some trim piece used to be. It's really strange, I probably should post an image of what's going on, but does anybody recognize this problem and is it commonplace? What would I need to do to fix it? Looks like a part is missing but I don't see anything from the trim schematic I found on the net. It looks like the two pieces shrunk away from each other. I don't see how that could be possible. Isn't the trim made out of aluminum or something? Any help is appreciated.
