[Vwdiesel] Looking for window parts

Ha ha, they don't necessarily stick too well!  I'm sure the front one must be on the way to being like the back one, as the window popped out of the lifter a couple times on its own.  The first time I tried recrimping it with pliers.  The other day, I used silicone to glue the rubber strip to the lifter, and more silicone to glue the glass to the rubber strip.  This is essentially how the windows are attached to the lifters on my Exploder which is where I got the idea.

OT Rant: Stupid Exploder's passenger side window only works sometimes.  I thought I had it fixed so the window would go back up-it was working quite well for a few weeks now.  But yesterday it started raining so I went out to close the window and it wouldn't go up!  If I could own one vehicle with properly working windows, that would be neat.  (The GTI I purchased the other day also has a window in the door... sheesh!)
