2006 396XL Window Thing-a-Bobs

3 of my windows are missing some plastic parts (shown in picture two) which snap into slots (shown in the first picture). Any ideas as to the function of the parts, what they are called, and a possible source for them?

Also, what are you all using to recondition the rubber around the windows?

If anyone is interested I got this figured out today. They are called window weepholes and the come with left and right-handed covers. The holes are there to allow condensation that forms on the windows in cooler weather to drain. Some makes of windows have small snap-on covers for the drains that prevent the rain intrusion.

Originally they all had the snap on covers, they keep the rain out at highway speeds, the rest of the time the weep holes use gravity to drain any water that gets in the window channels. Sadly they crack and fall off with age.

And for protecting exterior rubber seals, I go with the Fantastic Fan guys recommendation, Aerospace 303. They even sent me out an individually wrapped wipe.

Thanks israndy, I love your Skydeck. I rejuvenated a 1964 Tradewind and now I am bringing some new life to 2006 396 XL. The wife and I are going to full time in it when the Pandemic settles down. I am enjoying having a whole set of things to learn.
