Default 401 replacement door window channel insert.

I need to find a suitable window channel insert for one of the doors on my 401. I have looked at several felt lined rubber channels with some suppliers but so far have not come across any that are an exact fit to go in the frame.
Has anyone found and can recommend a supplier who stocks a replacement channel that is a good fit to both the frame and the glass.
Geoff.

Geoff; I have just bought 6m of "Code No: FWR713 Large flock window channel. 4.5 to 6mm glass. 14mm wide x 14mm high" from Seals+Direct Ltd ( www.sealsdirect.co.uk ). I fitted it to my 401 doors yesterday and all seems good.
Good luck .. Alan Stevens

Alan,
Thanks for that tip, I had forgotten about seals direct, the seal you used looks similar to some on other websites but the great advantage is their detail drawing which was a great help. I need to look at their site again tomorrow as I remember I had identified one of the seals they do as suitable for the bumper to body piping and I know I have not got enough of that, will save a bit of separate postage.
Geoff
