The other day as I was driving down the highway I realized there was a long back piece of weather stripping flapping around the windshield. As I rolled down the window to grab it I watched it zip past me into the traffic and onto the ground. When I arrived home I checked out the windshield and saw the gap in photo below.

Is there a replacement I can purchase?

Well, that was easy. Thanks!
 






kdog, I just noticed you're also a Kailuan. :dpchug:

Lived here 56 of my 61 years. Even recognize the Kailua Professional Center parking stall in your pic. LOL

Aloha! Too funny. :)
 






The disappointing thing is thinking back I think this was cut from the factory. I remember there being a break in the piece and you can see the clean cut line where it split.

Kdog, were you able to just buy the rubber strip that broke, or did you have to buy new A-pillar trim pieces??
 






Neither, but I plan on doing the full TSB to take care of both the strip and the rattle. I just haven't done it yet. :-D

I'm also finding it near impossible to locate the clips I would need if I did it myself.

Try a local Ford dealer if there is one near you.

Yea, the dealer near me sells the clips for like $7 I think. Check with your dealer. :)

Same thing happened to me. Did you find out if it could be replaced? This happened on both my driver & passenger side
 












I finally got mine replaced. Took it to the dealer and they made sure to make it worth their time. They charged me almost 2x the cost of the parts and I had all four parts replaced. :confused:

The good news is no more rattling and I have molding on my windshield again!

Thank you :)
 






Mine did the same thing as the original poster today. Is the rubber molding attached to the inner piece that's under the A pillar appliqué? I can't seem to find this part, only the outer piece.
