94 318i rear glass problem!

For a while now I have been hearing a weird noise in my car while driving at higher speeds. The other day it got so bad that I started looking around my car while driving to figure out where it was coming from. Well the top passenger side corner of my rear glass is flapping in the wind. I stopped to inspect it but it was dark. From what I can see when I life it it doesn't look like there is, Or ever was, any glue holding it in place. I was wondering if the weather stripping on the back clips to the body and holds it in place? Or maybe it's just really old? I don't know what to do here. Haven't found anyone that has had this problem.

Try looking in daylight. Makes it WAY easier to diagnose.

The rubber trim around the rear window just pops into place (there is no adhesive used). Replacement is very easy - should only take about 20 minutes, and the parts are very affordable. I, myself have a new set of rubber trim I'm getting ready to install on my car once the temps warm up a bit.

Here is the DIY tutorial:

And here are the part numbers (for a sedan):
