DIY chrome trim on club door

Hello

something is really annoying me at the moment. The chrome trim on the club door is not in "sync" with the trim on the driver door and the rear chrome trim. Can this trim be moved or adjusted? I think it may have popped out of its housing. I dont want to take it to the dealer as it always comes back with something different to annoy me.

Any advice?????

On further inspection it seems the actual window seems to have moved. If you look on the inside there is a gap at the rear of the club door. If you look in this gap it seems like there is some silicon attached to something. The window looks as if it has come away from the silicon. The window isn't loose or anything, but when I push it back into what seems to be its correct position, the trim goes into line with the other trim.
