Proximity Support -

Hey Big Load - Like Mrmerlin indicated the only term I've ever seen used for that small triangular part is a "window guide". They are designed to provide some proximity support to the window glass as it is opened or closed at very high autobahn speeds. There are evidently some aerodynamic forces going on in that corner of the door that can potentially unseat the glass at that end of it's travel.

I've checked around with a couple of sources here in the states and you pretty well must try and find a damaged door in a foreign car salvage yard to remove this part.

Good Luck, Michael
