    I read with great enthusiasm and anticipation the thread title. I'm now disappointed......
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Have you tried Ralph Moore Autoglass?

    As for the ciggy lighter, what plug do you have? The Australian version or the French version, they will need to be matched to the socket.

    I got my last couple from mecaparts, couldn't get a rubber locally. I didn't try Ralph Moore however although the screen did come from him.

    Hi Roger,

    I've been down this exact path, two years ago.

    There are or have been repro ones available in France but J-P doesn't like their quality. They are not often available from what I remember when looking back then. However, Jacques supplied me a NOS original then, so I suggest you try him. Did he get to the Muster?

    Cheers

    I screwed up with my reply, I read windscreen as such, rather than a windscreen seal.

    The one on my car came from Neo Retro, albeit 16 years ago. However 16 years after being fitted to the car, it is still in good nick, not even any signs of cracking at the corners or splitting at the join. If they are still the same quality now, it could be recommended.

    However, as John W mentions, pieces d'origine Renault ones were available. Renault had manufactured them as a new part, as Caravelle did have a few sets a few years ago with new Renault part number stickers on the bags. So they may still be available as a new part through a friendly Renault dealer.

    If my overseas supplier was telling me the truth, I got what was the last original rubber in stock back in 97 or 98 through Europe.
    That went into the Green R8 back in around 2004.
    Unless Renault had more made since then.

    The last couple I got came from Mecaparts as I think I mentioned above, and went into the white R10 with a spare set waiting to go into the red rocket when it is ready.

    Attached is a label from a rear window seal package that I bought from Caravelle at the time (2004, fronts had been sold out). I'm guessing another batch must have been made.
