Side Window/ Vent Window Pilar Seals

I have been looking for a seal for the front of the side window on the vent window pilar. Are there replacements?

I was thumbing through a MAC's part catalog the other day and saw the whole pilar listed for $45 (I think). Does anyone know if those have the seals already in them?

Thank You,

Yes they have the seal in them. Dont go LMC, they take too long and cost too much. NPD is awesome, good price and fast reasonable shipping cost.

Nice to know, thanks for the input. I will look into it I do have an NPD book.

But there isn't anyway to put new seals in my existing pilar?

Now I'm really confused... I have my parts catalogs from NPD and LMC open side by side and I don't think NPD has beat a LMC price yet! Am I crazy? Also I believe the part you are looking for is LMC part number 49-9353. That is only the seal for the front side. they have the back side seals too.

IMO LMC sucks the big one. I will pay extra anywhere to get the right parts fast. LMC radiator $469....NPD $389. Just one example. I've ordered from LMC 3x and everytime it not only was wrong or damaged the replacement was also wrong. Not to mention over 15 working days to be delivered. You can keep buying from LMC if you want but not me. Thats just my opinion.

I see NPD is actually the most expensive on what I am looking at
Dennis Carpenter is the cheapest

Out of LMC the item I am looking for a seal for is # 49-7386 (pg 15, the division bar assy, NPD #F-22296-4 (pg 232). I am looking to see if there are any seals for the side glass in the division bar assy (not vent window).

I have not had any real problems with LMC. I always get my parts within 3-4 business days, 5 tops. I don't care to much about how long shipping takes to much but more about the cost. I order in a fasion so I get the parts before I actually need them and not when I actually need them so I am not waiting.

I always compare prices and go with the cheapest because most times parts suppliers buy from one another and add a mark up or they are from china. Like LMC on the weatherstrips, they buy some of them right from Dennis Carpenter.

If I have to buy a new Division bar I guess that is what I have to do but I would like to only buy a seal if I could. I already have an old division bar ready to go in the truck other than this seal.

Is the new division bar just bare steel?

Division Bar separates door glass from vent window. The seal in the bar that the glass rides up/down on...was not available from Ford, the entire bar had to be purchased.

But, it's a felt seal, available from any autoglass shop.
