I don'tl know of any moulding that would go around the window. That's why you should go by an upholstery shop where they install tops and they may have or know of soemthing to fix your problem.

Whenever you buy a convertible, it should be understood, that eventually you will h]ave to replace the top. They dont last forever, they get foggy, faded, and eventually leak. They dont intend for them to last, its a good money maker to sell you a new one. (High end cars sometimes being the exception like with BMW's)

Most likely your going to have to get the top replaced. If you're lucky it could just be something loose that needs to be tightened. I wouldn't recommend trying to half a** it though, you might end up making it more trouble for yourself. If you do decide to get the top replaced shop around for prices, some places jack the price up alot more then others for convertible tops. Also they should have some sort of guarantee with the installation.
