Default Windscreen (windshield) plastic trim missing

Here's an interesting one...

Due to the front part of my roof rail lifting slightly, it loosened the windscreen weather strip that runs up the edge of the glass. I managed to work out that it is only clipped on so I removed it and placed some dobs of adhesive on the clips.

When I went to do the left side, I saw that it was already gone.

What is the correct name of this part? Can anyone suggest anywhere that I can get a new one?

Thanks!!

if not subaru, you can call a windscreen glassier, they can come in and replace the strip with a universal type and seal the top of the windscreen for you. its not so much that the windscreen will leak without the strip or having a strip put on incorectly, it will trap water between the roof the strip and the windscreen seal causing rust. I've had a couple of cars with just a generic universal type soft rubber siloconed in, most were fine i think one developed a couple of small rust spots above the windscreen but that car was an 1985 model so i cant say whether it was badly done or just the age of the car.

I've had mine come off 2-3 times on the highway... I just got to a wreckers or find a wrecked car on gumtree and grab it for $15 off someone. I have now used some superglue and fitted it properly. Been on there almost a year now.. :D
