    your exactly rt...that was the only thing that was not mentioned enough in this thread foam tape around the bottom/backside of the intake cowl is "iffy" but Honda /acura doesn't sell the gasket alone not sure if they have any more intake cowl covers either but foam tape is prob. your best bet ...anyone know where to get that "squishy " tape stuff that was oem...something similar.... I would think that it has a name but can't find anyone that knows exactly the name of the material it's self....;<

      Window seal tape will work for that cover under the cowl, i never understood why people try to use silicone that shrinks and crack to fix a leak. All of these half ass fixes done by people and then they get mad at the car because their cheap lazy fix failed.

      • Hey guys, I appreciate you have covered about everything on this thread. My problem is the seal/gasket? That goes along the cowl where it sits against the windshield. It's half stuck and half loose on the cowl. As is usual these days it's a discontinued part. Anybody have any advice for a nice fix? Also is it supposed to be adhered to the windshield? This teg lives outside and with the two pounds of dirt - debris it's not obvious if it just had a crap windshield replacement before we got it or what. Ideas anyone??

        • That piece of rubber is normally attached to the cowl, not the windshield. If it's sticking to the windshield that's just due to dirt or something like that - not an adhesive or anything. Hard to tell what you're dealing with without pics. But if the seal is in tact then I'd just use a razor blade or putty knife or similar to dislodge it from the windshield. Use some adhesive to put it back in place on the cowl and then reinstall. If you need to replace the seal then... well... good luck Probably best trying to find a used cowl at a junk yard although that will be tough to find a good one. You could look for some type of generic seal/gasket material that can be bought by the foot but that may be a wild goose chase.

          • Thanks for the info. I went with attaching the seal to the cowl. I used attachment tape, the dbl stick type. I took some pictures and hope to post how I refurbished my cowl. Probably shouldn't hold your breath though!Need to do a systems overhaul on the computer first. Thanks again for getting back to me.
