Hi guys,

Looking for Bailey Channel ideas (replacement) for a 1979 450SEL.

The car had some work and the rubber is cactus.

Open to suggestions.

Cheers,
Jenno

Had to look that one up.

Window channels.

When I got them one was NLA. I bought4 of the 1167250125  but that is NLA also now.

I have good used sets avail if you cant find anything else.

Thanks Rumb!

Full disclosure, I had to ask someone else what it was called... I might have been mis-informed.

I'm talking the rubber piece that runs between the outside of the glass and the door at the windowsill. The place where you would rest your elbow on a sunny day with the driver window all the way down. Couldn't think of a better way to explain it and no idea how to attach a photo...

Apart from waterproofing, I would imagine the rubber/felt wipes the outside of the window as you wind it down to stop the window taking dust inside the door.

Hopefully I'm making sense!

Cheers,
