The one's on my 87 are really starting to become an issue and something needs to be done. I don't want to see a 8/10 original interior damaged by something so silly.

Do you know which one it is? I don't know squat about this stuff and have no idea what I'm looking for.

All I know this has been one big huge PITA to try and figure out so far.

I realized after I posted that you might be talking about the driver's and front passenger triangular windows.

I don't know about those seals, sorry.

If your talking about the rear door windows, a little measuring of your current seals shouldn't be difficult

Have you checked your dealer? They have never failed me yet. When I painted the Phoenix in 2008 My dealer had ALL the wind lash and kitty whiskers and door seals brand new. Bought then and not for a rip off price. See your Dodge dealer. The more you buy the better price you get. I get everything at wholesale now. and beats the Autozone"s price By far and better , made in the USA.

Ok, I think I have a part number.

GM Chevy P/N 12384846

Comes in a bulk box. Unsure how many feet yet. Prices range from $170 to $450 online. It's a hell of a spread LOL!

As best I can tell, the seal is used on all 6 flip windows.

If there's anyone here that can do more with that part number, dig in! Let us know what you come up with.

Especially if anyone can come up with the # of feet in the box. That's my main hurdle right now.

Hell, if it's 100 feet I figure that will do 2 vans. I figure it will take approximately 40 feet to do 6 windows.

It's really a crying shame this is still an issue. Still need these, still can't find them.

I can't believe someone can't make a damn seal for us.

The windows on the sides and back. There are 6 of them total.

Why GM chromed the rear one's and blacked out the side one's is anyone's guess. I know this is 100% factory because it's been in the family since new.
