Rubber cowling trim below windshield- 2006

The rubber pieces between the windshield cowling and the front fenders cracked and fell apart on my 2006. I went to the dealer and they told me thy don't sell just the rubber trim pieces. Its $190 for one side and $160 for the other cowling pieces! I thought he was joking.

Does anyone know of an aftermarket trim piece that would fit? If not it looks like a tube of black RTV should make a good substitute.

Street scene makes a smooth cowl or you can get the oem parts from tasca ford for less that what you were quoted.

a search would of turned up results where this is already discussed. you can either order through tasca which i believe i paid 130 for both sides, or you can go the street scene way which is a smooth fiberglass piece and was around the same price but in one write up there was a little bit of modification needed and of course, it will need to be painted. theres a member that goes by Stealth on here and he has pictures in one of the threads of the street scene piece. might want to look him up and ask him questions...

the street scene wiper cowl is not as well designed as the OEM stuff, but in the long run is definitely much better. i myself have it and need to finish doing minor details to the cowl (hood hinges ride it up). it's worth the price to buy the SS cowl instead of buying OEM when in a couple years the same problem will come up about the rubber pieces

I found the entire cowl for 121.31 on tasca but am unable to find the rubber piece. Were you able to locate it?

You have to buy the entire cowl. They don't sell the rubber pieces separately.

...the rubber is part of the cowl-already glued on. What we all would LIKE would be just to be able to get the stupid rubber pieces for a couple dollars each so we could just replace THEM.

One other option is the wrecking yard. I looked at several wrecked F150s and picked the ones in the best shape. If you go this route make sure you pull them off yourself. Even in good shape they are very delicate. A small flat blade mechanical screwdriver will help get them off without damage. I think I paid $10 each and they look like new.

You won't find any in the Southwest, they have all rotted away.
I gave up and will use a tube of black silicone to shape my own.

On the positive side I got my new Roadwire 2 tone perforated leather seats installed today and boy do they look much better than the tan cloth!

I want to see someone do the SS cowl in a matte black on a colored truck.
