Hi, I'm sending pics and measurements, please let me know if it looks familiar at all. The picture is a 1 inch section and the dimensions are upside down, sorry.

Sincerely, Sean

I'm not certain of the window type or the part, I'd just like to be able to replace the seal or find something to replace it with. The windows slide against the flat edge of this rubber/vinyl to keep water and moisture out.

Unfortunately, I don't believe the weather stripping you need is still available. That said, I have a couple ideas you can start with to at least narrow down the list of possibilities. See our 58-055 or 58-177 and let me know if you could get either to work as a replacement.
A quick learner from Colorado says:
The 58-177 dimensions appear to be spot on, does anyone know what the length is of the insertion piece(how long is the arrow-shaped piece from the bottom of the seal.
Also mine is made out of rubber I think, will the 58-177 be able to be forced into the slot(in the picture) and stay put or will I need an adhesive, if so what's a good adhesive.

Ps. The 58-177 appears to be vinyl, is this correct? Because the 58-055 looks like plastic to me.

Thanks so much, Sean

Sure thing, the kerf length for the 58-177 is 3/16". Will that work for you? You shouldn't have to use adhesive, the kerf should just push into the slot. It is a flexible material, like your original.
