Hi all. I need help identifying a part (ideally, the Ford part number). I'll try to describe what it is and where it is located.

I need to replace the approximately 10 feet of weatherstripping/gasket/door seal ABOVE the passenger side doors on my 2006 Focus 4-Door Wagon (ZXW).
So there you see my first dilemma... I'm not sure what it is called. Weatherstripping? Door Seal? Gasket?

It is NOT the weatherstripping that goes AROUND the door OPENING. I've found that part number online, and already eBayed it. I am NOT needing that part.

The piece I need is not a loop. It runs from the mirror on the front door, up ABOVE the door opening, where the door closes against the roof, continuing across the pillar and above the rear door as well-- one piece. It's the piece that deflects most rainwater where the upper door panel meets the roof line.

I cut a cross section and pictured it so you can see. The rubber(?) material does include an embedded metal channel, for secure fastening to the ridge along the bottom of the roof line.
(Tried to embed the image. No go. Here's a link to it.)

I'd love to know the Ford part number, and then if anyone knows a very comparable aftermarket supplier that fits well, I'll probably go with that. (At 166K miles, not excited about putting expensive parts on it at this point, but I do want to keep the rain out.)

Thanks in advance for any info. or leads! This forum has been a huge help through the years. We run Focus Wagons for a short-haul, regional courier service.

UPDATE: Might have found Ford part no.

Well, it seems my part might be: XS4Z-7451822-BA

Both parts.ford.com and fordpartsgiant.com categorize it as "Weatherstrip Assy - Door Opening"

Any other good part lookup sites? I mainly use fordpartsgiant.com.

UPDATE with THANKS - KC Motor Co. - www.FindaFordPart.com

Part was indeed XS4Z-7451822-BA. I installed it today with ease. (First time in a couple weeks I've had a change to work on cars.)

I am pleased to recommend www.FindaFordPart.com - KC Motor Company in Chattanooga, TN.

Helpful folks who worked with me to make sure I was getting what I needed, and double-checking their various sources to make sure they could get their hands on the part before charging me for it.

I will seek them out again for hard-to-find parts on older vehicles.
