I went to a Auto glass shop, and it cost me about $ 40.00.
The exterior seal around my windshield is deteriorating, on average, what is the cost to fix this?

When I drive after a rain, if I back up fast or make a quick turn, I can hear water sloshing inside the car somewhere.
I think it also affects the transmission somehow. After it rains its harder to move the tranmission selector lever (say from reverse to drive). It kind of sounds like a squee-gee type of noise when I move the lever.
This is why I would like to make it waterproof. My real question was, how much to body shops charge to do this? I could do it myself, but I'm sure it would look sloppy.

This would still be considered part of the windshield gasket seal?

allenwest- The gasket you speak of, is just an exterior molding. It's just cosmetic and yea..expensive. Sometimes, when we shoot the glue, we shoot it a tad off. If it is too high, it could just touch the molding, and not adhere to the glass. That is what causes leaks most of the time. I mean..it happens. With my shop's rules tho, if we have to come back a 3rd time, we pull the old glass and put a new one in.

Sorry, I can't really tell what part of the car that is from the pic. What is the white stuff? Somehthing looks amiss with it tho. If you can get some more pics, I could probably help a little better.
Sorry. That thick white line is a rubber liner between the hood and windshield. Its actually black in color, but the camera flash made it look white. As you can see its cracked. Its like that along the entire windshield. I'll try to get better pics later.
