front and rear window seal / molding

So my rear and front windshield moldings are breaking apart.
Where can I get these items asap?

IF it's the trim between the glass and the car body, it's purely ornamental and you can take your time.

There is a DIY here somewhere. I was lazy and took it to the dealer because it seemed to be more than my patience would handle. I'm glad I did as it pulled up within a week of the dealer doing it and they had to do it over, with a new trim piece. Cost about $150 for the front.

So if it rains I don't need to worry about it?

For it to stick, you MUST get all the old material and glue out. Putting it back in place with the correct amount of glue and getting it flush is a challenge, I hear. Mine was whistling and actually flapping in the wind when I replaced it. Haven't done the rear yet, but it needs it soon.

I went to 2 glass shops, and neither would touch it because they thought they had to pull the glass. When I spoke to the dealer, they told me it was a beauty thing (at least the part that is basically flush between the window and the body metal)
