    The rubber door jam cable gland has perished on our Laika, this is the flexi rubber tube that allows you to safely pass cables from door to body.

    I can order one from the local dealers here but it will take months and cost more than a 2nd home..... and also as it's an unknown part (custom door and bodywork) I trying to find an alternative before the central locking cables get caught in the door and then create another job for the list.

    Anyone know where I can get an alternative that I can adjust to fit ? will get a pic but it's basically same handed at both ends, needs to be 20cm or longer and has an OD of 25mm. My only thought's are a breakers yard so far ?

    Your local vehicle dismantler will have hundreds of different sizes and aperture shapes in vehicle tailgates to choose from, its a question of an hr or so searching
    All you will need tool wise is a pair if good side cutters to chop the tailgate loom and slide off
    Id go for Tailgates as opposed to the door variety as they are generally longer

    Breakers yard it is then, just need to find one in CH as it seems many old cars are exported to other countries for scrapping, must be some around though.

    Good tip about the tailgate, that makes sense and I hadn't thought of that.
