I replaced this item recently and regret not also getting these two items:

51 71 8 193 201 Covering LEFT
51 71 8 193 202 Covering RIGHT

These two items (#9) exist at either end of the above Windshield Frame Cover (#3) and basically started crumbling on me as I messed with them a tad to work the windshield frame cover on. They appear that they would be easy to install but I don't know for sure. They are made of the same rubbery material as the Windshield Cover that goes around three sides of the windshield...the one that has its own stuck thread that I started.
