Window Trim Molding

The black molding that goes around the chrome frame of each window on my Cherokee are severely cracked, missing or coming loose. Can new molding be ordered to replace these? I'm not even sure what they are called. I read somewhere that you have to replace the window to fix the molding but I didn't think that was right.

Let me know if you have any thoughts.

Thanks!

Does that molding serve a purpose other than for looks? Would there be an issue with removing it and leaving the exposed chrome-looking frame? Or painting the chrome black?

Let me know if any of your have thoughts on this. Thanks!

Mine was chipping off leaving the exposed aluminum underneath. I was replacing the vent window one day and decided to try to make it look somewhat better. Roll the windows down and those pieces just pop off. They are held on with retaining clips. I took them off and scraped all that plastic covering off. It was all brittle so came off fairly easily and cleanly. Mine are currently still bare aluminum but when the weather gets better I am going to take them off again, scuff them and paint them back to the black. OR....just go to the wreckers and get a set off a wreck!
