Will take a pic of this tonight. Is there a quick fix for this? Starting to look pretty bad now. Down to the metal at the very top.

Just had my windshield replaced last week, the people doing it cracked/broke one of those moldings. They are replacing if for "free" (nothing is really free). According to the invoice it is called a "strip", part number (for the passenger side one) is 3B0-854-328-c-b41, cost is about $14.00. According to the service manager, it is a fairly simple snap in/snap out kind of thing, but I haven't really studied it.

I replaced mine about 18 months back.
Simple snap out, snap in.
The parts counter at the stealership will be able to help you out.

On funny thing, the left side was $2 more than the right side. They are identical mirror images of one another.

Yep... Replaced mine also.

I noticed the price difference also when I went to the stealership.

I replaced both since both of them were falling apart... especially close to the top of the windshield. It must be the washing fluid I use... or maybe just normal wear/tear, hot/cold weather cycles vs. rubber material degradation.
