Defective seal at top of hatch/rear of roof

What is the proper name for the thin rubber seal at top of hatch/rear of roof? It is torn and shows ugly when the hatch is closed. Where can I buy it and is it glued in or what?

Low Rear Window Tears Up Trim Seal

To adjust the rear window higher, without raising the hatch; For info, it is an adhesive glue attached window. It must be cut loose from its mounted position. new seals must be installed, and the window is then adhesively bonded to the hatch. In this case, I believe the shop used a thicker bead of adhesive, to raise the window; It can be pulled up, while the adhesive is still uncured, with suction cups, to help position it. This needs to be done by an experienced glass shop. Hope this is a help to someone.
