342 walk thru windshield rubber bumpers

Anyone know the part to replace the lower rubber bumper on the walkthru windshied door? (lower one)  I ordered once from Taylor made, the rubber piece is shorter than my original so now it hits the windshield when open.  The original one has a metal washer inside it: 15/16" long x 3/4" dia or so

Thanks!

    I was going to use a small length of vacuum tubing, long enough to keep it off the wiper.  Just haven't gotten to it yet.

    On another note, I need the rubber bumper with a snap on the end for the transom door.

    .....you may want to put a bumper on the bottom of the windshield opening frame too so that the window doesn't torque if someone pushes on it or a guest flips  it open and it lands hard.

    That bumper must not be from Taylor.  Amazingly difficult to find something close.  Got something close on order.

    I had the 2 original bumpers when I bought my boat but neither one touched the walk thru when opened. Only touched the wiper arm. Worthless

    I found a solution that fits!  I had to buy a bag of 6pcs.  Willing to share.  I will keep a spare tho.

    @Black_Diamond let me know what you are thinking.  Just replaced little plastic piece that keeps walk through windshield in place.  I noticed the bumpers are likely next to go.  Looks like i have one on the window itself and one that is fixed near the wiper.

    Sorry for the delay, wanted to get some pics and post all at once.
    Picture of the 2 bumpers: new one is on the right side (non-cracked one).
    Picture of the new bumper installed on the windshield post (removed original one from TaylorMade - too short)
    Purchase place and item number

    The new bumber has a recess (for a screw), I mounted that UP, some liq soap on the small hole and it pops right on.  At least on my 342, perfect fit, clears the wiper arm and no torque on glass when op.
