Default Marley guttering - rubber seals

does anyone know of a source wher you can buy just the rubber strip
they use in the guttering joins and endcaps ... my local plumbers
merchant claims you have to buy the whole fitting ....

****ing guttering has started to leak at the join - it's been 7 years
since I fitted it, and I guess expanding ice has distorted the seal.
Currently the ice is 2" thick in the gutter ... I'll have to wait for
it to thaw before repairing.

I would expect the seal has just been pushed out of its seating and
will put back in.
