Question Exchange of the front window sealing, molding

Hello, my front window sealing around the window looks terrible. Totally dry out and broken at some places from to much sun shine. The BMW dealer sell the sealing for 110 Dollars including installation. I would like to do it by my self. Said said they would give the car to a window repair and they do it for them. I dont like that my car get driven around.
Did some one did it before. My car is a BMW 645 Ci 2005
Thanks to all

Same here! I used some dielectric grease on the rubber but yours might be beyond that. Let me know how it goes!

Windshield 2005 645ci

Mine is dried up while every other body gasket is fine. We got the OEM BMW gasket and every glass shop said that they had to replace the windshield ($600 + shipping) or $1,050 from the dealer. Even with the windshield available, very few shops would touch it.
I took clear silicone, carefully dressed the top of the gasket, taped off and added some dull clear spray for now.

The expert said to use steel wire, drill a start hole and literally saw the windshield out but be ultra careful since these shields crack easily when removed.

The gasket is $53. Good luck on pulling the windshield and not cracking it.

Guys, this is a quick fix. I bought the trim from the dealership for about $60 and did the install myself in about an hr. Only took that long because I never done before. Here are some pics. Old trim comes off pretty easy, just need any kind of prying tool. I used a paint can opener. New trim goes in easily after you clean area and apply soapy water.

JDPSP, the only place I could find the part was from the dealership. Don't have the part #, but I'm sure it would be easy to get by calling your local dealer. It's pretty cheap, and makes a big difference in appearance. Unfortunately, all my pics look like the ones I submitted. I was gonna do a DIY but found the job easier than expected. Here is a link to the DIY I followed, different model, but same process.

Hello Friends,

yesterday I bought form BMW the molding, its still cold outside, when it gets warmer then its my time to change it. Unfortunately do look also the bottom part not so fresh anymore too. To change that will take more action I guess because of the wipers. Thanks so far for the input.
