Windscreen surround rubber split

On two Espace 2.1TD 95 and 96 I looked at yesterday both the windscreen rubber surrounds were split right across in the top corner as it starts to descend down the pillar (hope explained well enough). There is as a result quite a gap of between 1/2 and 1" Is this piece of rubber (or rather 2 pieces with a slide over join at the top of the windscreen) cosmetic or funtional? I assume it cuts down wind noise but can I expect water to be pouring in past this outer surround piece?
Where would I get replacement surround pieces ie is it only main stealer?
As you can perhaps tell I am knew to espaces and am trying to educate myself whilst looking at possible s/h buys and avoid possible problems.
