installed body side molding

I had the molding installed by a garage last week, and it really looks nice on my '05' Impreza sport wagon.

It's 7/8" wide, 3/8" thick with 3m self adhesive on the back. The only place I could get it from was Calif.

The problem I'm having is it's letting go in extreme small areas. I try to press it back into place, but after awhile, the extreme small area lets go again.
Any ideas on how to repair this?? :cry: :

Ditto the above, is it coming off on straight sections or on curved?
Sounds like it wasn't DE-greased properly first, sometimes they recommend heating gently the area to be applied on first.
