Window rattle

Well I finally got around to taking the door apart to see why the drivers door rattles when closing the door. It only does it when the window is down. Took drivers door apart and nothing seemed top be missing so I took the passengers door apart and discovered I am missing the clip that I have circled in the picture. This clip holds the window trim up against the window to eliminate rattling.
Anyone happen to have one of these ona parts car they would part with?
Gonna check EPC next to se if I can find a part number.

Thanks

Mine doesn't have that piece either. Window rattles when down are commonly caused by a missing (dropped off) slide block which attaches to the glass and slides up and down a U shaped rail attached to the door. That chrome piece is the top of the rail and comes off with 2 allen bolts accessible via holes in the back of the door. If you take it off be careful not to lose the little allen bolts when undoing.

But that piece is at the bottom edge of the glass. It is the top of the glass that is rattling when the window is down and I shut the door.

I am a little surprised to see we haven't covered this in the EPC or CLAP. Roncallo covered all the window adjustments, but not the guides?

My 73 needs this repair.

The 2 felt/rubber strips (inside and outside the glass at the top) should prevent top rattle. Are you sure the rattle isn't down below?

EPC and egv107 aren't one in the same yet?

Thanks for smelling my brain fart for me. I have had so many I can't smell them anymore.
