rubber roof lifting

I just checked my roof before leaving on our snowbird trip and discovered a bubble in the rubber near the front. It's about 16" long and 6" wide. It sticks up about an inch. How do I fix it?

I have heard that you can repair by injecting glue with a needle. I have seen if you cut a slit and actually open up the bubble, you then can reglue the decking and lay the loose top back down. Your going to have a overlap of the material. The one I saw was trimmed to make it look like all the excess material was removed and all that was visible was a glue line. It actually did not look bad and was glued enough to prevent any leaks.

You could also cover the seam with Eternabond once you've glued the sections down.

I second and third the use of Eternabond tape for roof repairs. Add another barrier for the water to face to help prevent leaks.
