Torn weather stripping

Anyone else have an issue with the weatherstripping on the molding tearing and continuously peeling back from front to rear? I'm referring to the 1/8" rubber strip that is attached to the chrome molding piece that runs from the base of the windshield to the rear window. I have to keep trimming it as it peels back because it flaps all over causing a buzzing noise and staining the paint. Based on the parts image, it appears these molding pieces simply snap in place? If so, it seems like they should be pretty easy to replace. They're $86 each though, which sucks.

I have the same issue. It's a 2009 TL and I park it outside in the sun.

My 2010 TL is doing the same thing. I ordered them plus the Windshield molding (which shrank from the sun causing a passenger side water leak) from Acura this morning.

Cool. Please post back after you replace them and let me/us know if you encountered any difficulty.

I have the same issue as well. I've been reluctant to replace them.... maybe once all of the rubber falls off, it'll leave just the chrome and nobody will be the wiser!

Okay, but what about water infiltration?

The silver part has a rubber edge. That is that part that is wearing out. My car is out in the sun and it is for sure degrading. Good to know that there is a replace part for it.

I have had the same issue with the rubber seal/molding on top of the chrome being completely worn out. I took my TL to an Acura Dealership and was quoted $1200 just to replace all 4.

1200? That's Ridiculous. I'm gonna Check out Youtube to see if anyone has done it already. Dealerships pricing can be outrageous while Some dealerships can be quite reasonable.

I am having the same issue with my 12. I keep it parked in the garage at home and in the parking garage at work so the car sees very little sunlight. I have gradually taken off the seals cause they keep peeling off with the wind and flapping all over the car around them making a lot of noise when I drive it.

Climate differences?

My car also has no issues with the weatherstripping, but I live in a moderate climate.

I think there's 4 clips near the windshield is. Bottom, middle and top. I used plastic pry tools to remove mine. After you got those 3 clips removed, the flips on the roof is pretty easy. I think you slide the rails up then bring the bottom up to release those. I wrapped my roof and took them off to get a cleaner wrap. It's been a couple years since i've done it so I don't quite remember but it's pretty easy. It's definitely not a 1200 job. This thread has a link to a service manual for our cars.
