The weatherstripping on my van's windows has hardened and is falling apart. It's ready for replacing and looks like an easy enough fix. Any idea where I might find replacement weatherstripping? My local shop told me that the best bet is to find out who made the windows but I don't see any marking or sign of the manufacturer.

Here's some photos of the windows in question.







Thanks, John

See my post in this thread. They make most of the van windows.

Yep, the shape & screen strongly resemble my '06 Tiger's Hehr sliding windows. Alternatively, take it to an auto glass place and see if they have weatherstripping of the same cross-section.

That's my rig right there! Looks like you've done some fixing up to it. Did you replace the OEM generator with a Honda? I'd love to see more photos and hear more about your upgrades.

Edited to add: I went to their website and called pellandent. They have only one replacement piece but it doesn't look like what was in there before. Do you remember what you used?

x2 for all-rite - it took some looking to find the match, but they had an exact match for my windows rubber gasket.

PS your windows look very similar to mine and these were the two moldings I needed.
