Default 240 wagon 1993 Rear windscreen seal

Hi,
I'm looking for rear windscreen rubber seal (it's two-pieces kit?) for my 1993 240 wagon and it seems it's out of stock or discontinued anywhere I look. Is there an alternative way to replace it using generic products?

Hit up redwood chair on here, he or someone else may have a good condition used replacement. I just threw out one in my parts hoard from an 87 with chrome trim and it was one piece.

The door skin, window, and latch details are different.

I'm having a similar problem where the rear window is trying to fall out. It leaks a little bit at the top, has about a 1/8" gap on top, and is sitting on the wiper shaft on the bottom. Glass is fine, seal might not be.

Redwood, you have any seals for the late style tailgate?

The later ones don't have seals, just a rubber trim band around the edge.

So then how's the window held in? Just rubbery schmoo around the edge, under the trim? I can't find a service manual that talks about the late style tailgate.

Actually, there were at least 3 different seals for the tailgate glass on 245's, all of which are discontinued.

The late flush glass is set in butyl from the factory, and held in place with steel clips.

OK, I'm going to recycle the one I got and use lots of glass bonding glue. Hope it will do the job.
