Metal speaker grill on the top of the phone coming off below the camera

I have been using my HTC One M8 for more than 2 weeks now and only yesterday I realized that the Metal Plate / Speaker grill coming up slightly below the front facing camera.

When I press it down it will stick back and look perfect but then again after some time it will come up slightly again.

It is annoying. Is there anyway I can fix this on my own or do I have to take it to HTC for repair?

I have attached 2 pictures. The first one shows the problem below the front facing camera and the second one showing how it is perfect after I pressed it down.

Anyone else having this problem?

I did on the left side. I simply pushed it down really hard for a minute and it hasn't come back.

I have pressed down on the area and held it for 1 to 2 mins. It sticks for a while and then raises up slightly again. I believe it is a glue issue. Hope. HTC will fix it for me.

I have rooted my phone and I am worried they may not help me out.

I would unpeel it, add a very small amount of glue. Try HTC first though.

Yeah I will try with HTC first. I am sure they can do a better job to fix this as they have to remove the metal grill to dismantle the phone so they must have some experience removing and reinstalling the metal grill.

I gave my phone to HTC for repair. They said it will take 3 to 4 days. In the meanwhile they gave me the HTC Butterfly S to use until I get my phone back.

I guess you must have got your phone long back ! Does yours show the same behaviour again ?
How was the device after the service ? Most people including me,experienced scratches on the display. Was your treated in a similar way ? Lemme know...
