    No, somebody got a can of something and squirted it - either thinking it would insulate or reduce a rattle. Whatever they were trying to "improve" they didn't.

    It's 'factory' in most of the vehicles built today.

    I had my windshield changed a while back as it cracked for no apparent reason! ...The black sticky stuff, was sure soft alright, but as he was cutting it out it kept sticking back together on itself! ...wouldn't want to have to remove it now though, he used a modern bond glue, so I think it's stuck in there pretty good now!
