Should I replace the rubber end caps?

Recommended Posts

On my 09 Silverado, when you raise the hood, there are two rubber/plastic pieces up near the cowl/grille at the bottom of the windshield that have slits in them for the hinge to slide up into.

I was looking at these and the rubber is getting really soft and almost gooey. When I touch them my fingers turn black from the rubber coming off.

It is almost as if they were soaked in some type of chemical and the rubber is starting to liquify.

The truck is only 6 years old, and these are probably getting weathered.

Anyone else have these falling apart on them.

Here is a link to what they are...
