Its the little cloth type sleeve that fits over the rod connecting the door handle and door latch assy. It prevents the latch rod from rattling and scratching on the door window when it is rolled down. I can't seem to find it in NPD or other mail order catalogs. Is there a generic piece one can buy at the local parts store? I'm not concourse picky, so any material that would work adequately would be fine with me. My old sleeves are grungy and frayed and need replaced. Thanks.
