to answer #1
on the Avants (wagons) the moulding strip appears to have a tendancy of 
shrinking and "cupping"  I was able to find the following part numbers in 
the family album...

445 853 303 B Left molding for side window
              304 B Right  molding for side window

443 853 763  Left rear (door) molding for window slot   also use 443 853 781E
443 853 764 Right rear 
(door)                                                  442 853 782E

443 853 397  retaining strip for moulding 840mm shorten to 680mm
(I believe that this is the rubber strip)

I have removed the rubber strip from the front driver's door - it slides 
into place and is locked in place by a cap on the door edge.

I think that I might check with a glass replacement shop if they have a 
generic replacement for the rubber strip before I would pay the $$ for oem
