about 100.00 from the dealer. The chrome ones typically get brittle over the years.

push the center retaining clip back to expose the end of the strip. Then take a screw driver and pry it up gently. But seeing yours is already broken you might as well pull up on it and it should run along as you pull.

The trick is putting the new one in!!! Now for that you need a bit of finesse and practice.. :-)

quick question... if water gets in... is there a chance that it would leak into the car? it is a weatherstrip after all and i assume it serves the purpose of holding the windshield and blocking the elements..had some wet front carpet this weekend and i'm wondering if it came in from there...

^^^Nah, i drove 2 months without the lockstrip on my rear glass and ZERO leaks.

You have a blocked drain somewhere.

What side? driver or passenger?
