Default Plastic Aluminum Trim Around The Windshield

Sorry if this post has been made but I don't know what the exact part it is so I will describe it as best I can and will try to get some pictures up later.

The Plastic Trim insert that is like 1'' wide that sits next to the side of the windshield and runs up the front and down the roof down the back window. It is like cloudy looking and looks terrible and one side is loose and rattles when I drive. Is this something I can order online and replace on my own without messing it up or breaking anything? Also the rubber trim on the top of my windshield that runs the length is not sealed and is this something I should just buy some sealant and push it back in or is this something a window guy needs to do to make it sit properly? Thanks for your feedback.

They are called roof strips or roof trim. Your best bet is to paint them using plastidip. That way you wont have to remove them. As far as I know only the dealership sells them and they're pretty expensive. As far as the window seal you should probably let a windshield shop take a look at it.

I was told the windshield seal is what helps seal the windshield...have a qualified shop check that.

As far as the roof strips...blackout tape, or paint are your best options!
