Window guards rubber coming loose/hanging down.

The rubber lining in the front window "rock guards" are starting to come out of there "nich" around the edge of the window frames. Also, the 1" round rubber "bumper" around between the AS skin/window frame and the window "rock" guard protector is also coming apart. Looking for solutions; is there a part number/recommended "store" to buy new rubber liner for the 1/8" round, and the bumper/spacer? Appreciate any suggestions/experience. 4th AS and we had not faced this one...

Go to Home Depot or Lowes and get 0.25-inch screen spline and a roller. It is the same thing for a lot less $$$s. I replaced mine last year in my 2004. It was easy. Pull out the old, press in the new.

Many Thanks!

Appreciate the response; I will order when we get back to Star Valley Ranch.
Likely will try the Home Depot route first and Woodland if that does not work out.

By the way, off topic, but...we are in Gros Ventur (Tetons) campgrounds for next 5 days...had to make an "appointment" to use the dump station...apparently, the NP service now has a dump restriction...limited to 43 dumps per day here!

I just cut that rubber lining (at the corner) that holds the window in place then push it back into the frame. Never had it come out again.

OK; got the spline info. Home Depot seems good advise. How about the 1" rubber around the "rock guard, curved plastic window" that is separating? Any help appreciated there too!
