Default "Rubber" seal between headlight and wing.

Today I noticed some damage to the sealing strip between the outer section (sidelight area) of the headlight unit and wing panel. Along the top edge, just outboard of the bonnet.

Part of the seal (an inch or so) has gone and the adjacent section appears to be coming loose.

Is this easy to replace, even available? Or would you just try and sort it out with careful application of black silicone sealant?

That's a standard feature on most of them these days unfortunately Its simple enough to change with the headlight out, but NLA from Audi.

Part numbers are 4D0941191A (left) and 4D0941192A (right) in case you can find anywhere. I haven't tried Tradition.

I would leave it alone rather than trying to silicone it. I think that would make more mess and look worse.

Thanks for the part numbers MJ.

40.90 at Tradition, if only you could buy there.....

45.76 plus shipping (17.40) from Logistikzentrum-Lehrte so over 55. Plus maybe a handling charge if they have to go to Tradition.

That was just price for left, which is what I might need. Right is 2 cents less.
