Hopefully, you are still under warranty, if not I would see if the dealer is willing to work with you on a replacement top.
Yes still under warranty, I will visit the dealer tomorrow morning, will post an update when they finish, thank you for your input.

Can I ask, do you drive with the top up and the windows down? I typically don’t, if the tops not down, then the weatherman made a mistake.

With glass delaminating on multiple verts, multiple times, makes me wonder if that’s the cause. You should be able to drive top up, windows down and not lose rear glass. What a PIA.

Good luck..

I don't drive with the top up/windows down. I'm in SoCal and my Camaro is a daily driver...I try and drive with the top down every chance I get.

...or design putting excessive tensile peel-stress on the adhesive/glass interface. <5 years is premature for a vert top to fail. That said, convertible and fabric/vinyl vert tops never last forever ... ~5-10 years is normal for top longevity (5 if kept outside, 10 if garaged).

My local top guy replaces Camaro tops for the local dealers (both their warranty and non-warranty work). When I had my wife's '07 in for a new top a couple years ago I stopped by with the Z. He had just replaced a top on a '18 RS the dealer had on the lot ... one of Cox's PDI techs had put something on it that dissolved the adhesive (turned it white).

$#!t happens... sooner or later, but it happens.

I have a 2016, and having the same issue. I will be checking with the dealer tomorrow to see if this is covered as part of the extended warranty.

So they were able to keep the top in place and just repair/replace the window ? if so that is awesome.
