Moulding near trunk gasket is lifting

I got my car back from some shop work to remediate flooding (of the car). Seats were removed, carpet and electrical on the floor were replaced. It's been about 2 weeks that I got it back after about 1.5 months in the shop (most of that waiting for the replacement carpet).

I noticed this past weekend a lifting of some moulding around the trunk door gasket. Never saw that before. It possible that it has nothing to do with the flood remediation work, and I don't feel that I have grounds to suggest that it is related. I think I may just bring it into the (Honda) shop and see what they can do. If they decide that it is a result of the remediation work (without my suggesting it), then fine.



Short of getting Honda to deal with this, can anyone suggest what might cause this? Is there a simple way to "reseat" the moulding? Simply pushing it back into place doesn't work.

Take it back to that shop and suggest they overlooked securing this trim when they put the interior together?

I'll just ask if that trim might have been unsecured during the remediation work. If they say no, I'll cover it. I don't want to be too presumptuous about what might have been affected, as i don't know had to be disassembled.

Unfamiliar with this gen, but can't you pull the rubber seal a bit, push in the plastic panel, then put the seal back on?

Apparently, there are clips for holding that piece of trim in place. I've already requested a repair and they've ordered the part. Thanks.
