The trim around my passenger door (it's a coupe) sticks to the car frame making it a bit difficult to open and close the door. I took it to the dealer who supposedly replaced the trim, and it was fine for awhile, but it still sticks. The problem is temporarily solved if I put some dishwashing liquid on the trim, but after awhile, it'll stick again. Is there a more permanent solution to this problem?

I could call back the dealer (it is under warranty), but considering they didn't really fix it last time, and I was w/o my car for the day, I figure I'd see if there's a simple solution.

So is the trim actually "sticking" as in glue sticking, or is it getting caught on something like the frame of the car?

It's sticking like 'hot summer day' sticking. If I open the door slowly, the top left corner of the door will stick to the frame longer, but it's not caught on anything, just rubber sticking to metal. Putting dishwasher liquid and/or Armor All there solves the problem temporarily.
