Default Rubber piece missing from side of roof

I noticed this morning that the rubber strip that runs along the side of my roof is missing. I'm guessing somehow it came off when I was driving? Only other thing I can think of is somebody stole it for some odd reason. Anyone had this same thing happen? I haven't even had her for a year yet so wouldn't expect things to start falling off. Wonder if this will be covered under my warranty?

There are some pins sticking out that could be fasterners but I also see reminance of 3M tape.

It is held on by fasteners and tape. You can buy a new one from Tousley and do it yourself or go to a dealership.

GT/CS Front Bumper | Bullit Grille | Hawk HPS pads| Slotted and Drilled Rotors | Strano Swaybars

There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact, it's all dark.

The rain rail strip snaps into place, the plastic pieces that the rain rail snaps into are riveted into place (originally), body shops often epoxy new ones into place since the rivet doesn't really hold more than once.

If you haven't had it a year and are still under 12k miles the dealer should replace it no questions asked. Honda Fits have a recall on them for them flying off going down the interstate. We are instructed to glue them down or replace them with an undated one if they are gone. They just slide onto those two rivets sticking up.

I would hope they would replace it under warranty, there is no reason not to. I have not seen one of those go missing on a new one, guess bad seal from factory.

Take it back and see what the dealership has to say and let us know.

They just pull off, there was no tape used. I removed the ones on my 05 after I bought it to clean them up. I also wanted to clean out the dirt that accumulates underneath as you can see in the OP's pic.

If you get a new one it takes less than a minute to install.
