This is the rubber bellows boot that goes between the front door and the body on all Vanagon that have power items in the doors. So if you have an early Vanagon with no power windows, or mirrors, you won't have these boots. But if you have a later model Vanagon with power stuff in the door, you will have this boot between the front door and the body. It is located in the door hinge area and a bunch of electrical wiring is inside. The problem can be when someone has cut the boot open to work in the wiring. This is the wrong approach to fixing the wiring. The best way I have found is to pull the wiring out, do the repairs on either side of the hinge area, but not in the hinge itself, and then put the wiring back inside the tube. You are buying one tube. One is required for each side. I am going to list them for early Vanagons too just in case someone has added power items to them, as it will fit, but it wasn't stock on any Vanagon before 1986.
