This is driving me insane. But I really don’t wanna spend over a hundred bucks to replace. Anyone found a cheap fix to make this look less retarded?

I need the same rubber trim for my car. This might be what you are looking for.

If it's coming apart, replacement of the molding is the only option.
The last time I looked, the molding is no longer available from Honda. However, checking with some other online dealers, it seems to still be listed. I don't know whether my regular dealership just decided to not carry such large items, or if the others are out of date in still listing it as available.

That's for the top of the windshield. Completely different part.

It’s driving me nuts. But I refuse to pay over a hundred bucks to fix it. I hit the local scrap yard but the only 8th they had on the yard had the same issue. I tried finding a fix with foam weather stripping but nothing looked right. Guess it’s just gunna stay that way!

cheap fix

Hello.

Ha ha. No you don't need to make it stay that way and you don't need to pay $100 for the trim.

What I did was go to home depot > go to house door section > buy some squishy rubber trim > I bought 1/4" thick, but in hindsight, if they have a little thicker it is better. I can't remember the cost - probably $3-7 for a roll, which is enough for both sides plus extra.

The 1/4" rubber trim width fits well in most of the slot, except the ends where you have to taper it with a scissors, and the middle where it is a little loose (hence recommending buy little thicker). Don't need to worry about making it look neat when you cut - you won't see the sloppy cut because you're squishing the rubber in there and can't see it when its done.

I didn't bother adding extra adhesive... the rubber stayed in place and did not move around for 3 years (until the windshield repair man pulled one side out and threw it away). I have to reinstall one side.

good luck.
