Where can I buy that black strip that goes on the roof?

Hi. I'm not sure what the part is called, but it's that long piece of black rubber/ plastic that goes from the windshield to the trunk on the driver's and passenger sides.

Somehow, mine came off and from time to time flops in the wind. I'd like to get a new one, I just don't know what the part is called. Thanks!

Almost lost mine in a car wash randomly about 2 years ago. I snapped it back on and it hasn't been a problem since.

Here's a site that sells it. Never dealt with them, but it should get you a part number at least:

74306-TF0-003 ROOF MOLDING | Genuine Honda OEM Parts

Just to be safe, I'd go to a dealer and get the honest-to-goodness part number before ordering anything online.

Thanks! Mine initially came off in a car wash, but now comes off every once in a while.

It's not that safe. Some people find amusement in giving out convincing sounding part numbers for free:

It's not right? Sorry, I'll refund your money. Oh, you spent $0 here? That's easy to refund, I guess we're done. Would you like me to sell you the right part now?

I just noticed. Mine fell off at some point in the last 6 months. Do I need to replace (e.g. will something bad like rust or water in the cabin happen) if I don't do anything?

Its the seam where the roof is welded together.. Clean the groove out well and touch up any spots that need it, then replace the rubber strip. Or drive it till it leaks..

Thanks. I ordered the part from Amazon. I didn't realize that it would eventually leak, so I'm glad to have ordered the part.
