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.

Thats a good idea. I even considered rubber tubing or swamp cooler water line. I had to run some errands so I stopped at NAPA and got some cloth wire loom. It is semi-stiff and has a black "resin" coating to provide the stiffness. 1/4" was 20 cents/foot and 3/8" or 1/2" was 40 cents/foot. The wire loom material and weave is somewhat similar to the orginal stuff with the exception of the black resin coating. If anyone has any other ideas, I'd like to hear them. Thanks.
