    So, I recently replaced the notorious plastic gear in my tailgate window/motor assembly and the window raises and lowers great-until the glass seperates from the channel it is supposed to be held by. There is a strip of 'U' shaped rubber that should hold the window tightly in place but mine is crusty and torn from years of use. I can not seem to find a decent replacement locally and have not figured out an alternative yet. (I may just use some sort of rubber sealant and glue it in place... GHETTO!) Has anyone found a good replacement or alternative to this window rubber ?

    Thanks.

    just hit up a glass shop....they have rolls of stuff that's kind of like tar stripping, but not as gooey...works great.

    Mine came with the ghetto seal in it, with the channel all mangled up and filled with orange rubber of some sort. I guess it works, but it definetly looks like crap.
