Does anyone have a source for the rubber molding that seals the windshield? I know the Fiero Store sells a kit for $24.95, but I thought it could be had for less.

Check ebay express. Fierowarehouse sells them a bit cheaper.

I would check a local window replacement place. The ones i have seen them install are not preformed and they have it in bulk.

I've seen posts that mention both the windshield molding and trim. The Fiero Store has the molding - is there a source for "trim"? My windshield is leaking from the upper seal, and I don't find anything that looks like trim.

It's all trim/molding (same stuff) if your are talking about the black plastic around the edge of the windshield. This does not seal the windshield, it just fills the gap. If yours is leaking, the urathane that holds the windshield in place is leaking and you need to replace or add more to the area that is leaking (comes in a tube like caulking).

Any glass shop will have the trim, however what Fierowarehouse sells is an reproducition of the original (not sure what the Fiero Store one is like). What the glass shop has is usually a wider strip.

You better go with the auto glass place ( the wider one is the best )
