Softop Whistle

Howdy folks. '02 Sahara, Bestop Supertop which is about two weeks old. I've noticed a whistling sound coming from the top center of the windshield, where the header meets up with the windshield, at anything over 15 mph. Looking outside, the seal up there looks like it's shrunk and needs to be replaced.

This is the same seal that the latches some times catch on when taking the top down.

What the heck is that called, so I know what to order, and how hard is it to replace?

Look at Morris 4x4 and Quadratec, they should have a drawing of all the parts of the tops, or Bestops site should. Maybe that'll help identify what you need.
