    What is this and how can I order a new one?

    Here:


    and a zoomed out pic for reference:


    As you can see, it's starting to degrade and shrink from sun damange. It looks easy to replace, I just don't know what its called and don't know where I'd order a new one. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Ultraview is the fancy name for the sun/moon-roof, right?

    Ok, I'll PM Rippy, thanks.

    Re: What is this and how can I order a new one?

    ok so I showed my wind and water leak expert what you're dealing with

    he said that what happens is the weatherstrips shrink

    both the side-to-side and the front to back so the gap appears and they pull apart from each other
    you can kind of see that the side-to-side weatherstrip turns 90 degrees at the corners and would slide into the front-to-back weatherstrip

    he said the correct repair is to replace all of them since just getting a side-to-side weatherstrip would still not be able to 'lock' in properly with the shrunken front-to-back part
    what makes it worse is that the panels that they're attached to are glued/urethaned to the roof and have to be chiseled off (or something like that) and you risk breaking them

    he also mentioned that these weatherstrips do not hold back water ... they are mainly for wind noise
    if you can get that weatherstrip to tuck back down and stay down you will probably save yourself a very large service bill and headache

    Thanks so much. Wish I had you guys in Tucson! So I guess I'll just super-glue that thing down. Good to know that its not going to cause any leaks.

    yeah that's probably the best course of action for the time being
