    This is the one that takes the gasket that always leaks above both doors on the 2006 Mustang. Mine had been gooped up with something and in the process of trying to get it clean enough to put the new seals on the two piece trim panel is falling apart. I would really like to replace it with new if possible instate of trying to get it back together again. I have only gotten the passenger side apart so far but I can bet the other side is no better so I will need both sides. I cannot find this part listed anywhere.

    Talk to Steve at Tasca, he is awesome at getting part numbers and pricing; his contact info is in the vendor section.

    I posted a message on his board on here also. I knew I was in trouble when the screws were coming out with sticky black gunk on them! I can probably glue the two halves of the trim panels back together but I would rather go with new if available and reasonable price.

    Steve, it is attached to the roof and holds the door gasket. I did find it online but they are pricey for what they are. P/N CR3Z-6351238-A and 9-A

    After seeing how they are put together and seeing the water entry problem I can see the problem lies in the design of the part where the water gets in the gap between the two sections of the trim piece. Really poor design and to think it has lasted this long!

    Ah yes, those things were revised five times which is why the newest one is a 2013 design. And no, not cheap. Not cheap to ship either due to size.
