try the spares department at your local car dealer for your make of car --it is the same for most models , just a different length to fit the door opening
try rubber retailers as they have the window glass channeling and that weather strip for most cars
you will need to raise the glass , manually, until you can access the bottom of the glass where it connects to the opening mechanism and release (if not already at this stage) ,if you want the glass out of the door completely then you have to remove all the trims along the edge of door(weather strips) and around window/door frame , the seals ,the window will then be able to be lifted out , carefully !!
doors or windows doors the seals go under trim that must be removed most just snap in place some use screws remove and replace weather strip . door seals they seat around the top in a grove on either side and inserts along the sides and bottom. door window seals out side remove door panel remove mirror pull up remove moulding inside just pull up strip and replace.
if air from upper window frame area let window down and with knee at door panel slightly pull in on upper door it will pull to seal if coming from lower door may need to have door lock/striker adjusted
pop the hood and take out the plastic shroud on the passenger side at the firewall. there is a rubber weather stripping that will direct the rain water off the wind shield other wise the rain will fall directly onto the top of the fan motor then run down onto the carpet. i noticed mine when the fan motor iced up and was about an inch thick of ice. all i did was RTV on the weather stripping to redirect the water good luck.
