    1G Accord Windshield Weatherstrip

    Has anyone found a source for windshield and hatch window weather strip (gasket or seal)?

    Or, have you replaced the OEM weather strip with some other type?

    Mine is pretty crispy and I would love to replace it.

    No suggestions unfortunately.
    I'd think any aftermarket 'standard' or generic, windscreen seal would mean giving up upon the Accords Stainless steel trims, or trying to glue them on over the top.
    The down side of parts designed specifically for the car rather than the older practice of using simpler standard extrusions.

    I was kind of hoping someone made something with the same extrusion profile.

    Maybe I'll drop a part-wanted ad here. Maybe someone is parting out an Accord with reasonably sound windshield and hatch window rubber.

    I just picked up some aftermarket gaskets for the windshield and the hatch window. I had to contact a seller on Facebook who is in Malaysia. It can be risky doing that, as there is no way to see people's reputation or anything on there... But I have had pretty good luck so far.

    Those look like cartoon versions of window weatherstrip.
