Mine came from an auto parts store like Pep Boys/Autozone/OReilly (Canadian Tire).

I took in the dud ones and they matched them up with some Dorman ones they had in stock.

Cant remember the North American app, they just had serial numbers on them and were inexpensive.

Thanks all- I just got off the phone with Jeff @ JAE- he can order them and have them shipped to me.

How hard are they to change?

They are not hard to change out however it is very IMPORTANT to install the safety pin on each end especially the end near the bulk head. If the pin is not there they can walk off the mount rod after opening and closing a few times and blow out the rear window. -eek-

Thanks for the tip Type82, and thanks to everyone else.

I'll be picking my car up on Monday & will post a few pics of it.
