I think he means the seal? Likely to be very hard to find now. I tried finding one for my 45S over 10 years ago. The Fiat dealer said they were a long discontinued part.

As mentioned, the genuine part(s) is/ are discontinued. The factory tilt/ slide sunroof assembly is still viewable on the Fiat EPER for the early mk2 Uno, so you can get the part numbers as they are the same as the mk1 tilt/ slide factory sunroof. Later mk2's changed to a less complicated pop up sunroof.

When I was looking for a seal for my mk1 45S (the factory fitted tilt/ slide version), I also tried sunroof specialists. They correctly told me that the sunroof was a bought in part, and that most manufacturers buy in a sunroof rather than making it themselves. It also means that the sunroof was unique to Fiat/ Uno and does not use generally available parts. Additionally, it means that a limited run was made, and once this run has been used up that's it. Fiat would only carry a limited amount of stock/ parts for a certain number of years, and once discontinued, no more parts available unless a very old Fiat dealer has some left in a dark and dusty corner somewhere.

Your best hope is to find a sunroof assembly from a scrapper, though with Unos getting thin on the ground they are getting hard to find. Or find a roof from a Uno that has been removed as some people convert back to a non sunroof roof skin to save the hassle. You could also do what I did and completely removed and disassemble the sunroof assembly. Then methodically clean up all the parts, thoroughly clean/ de-gunk the seal and reassemble. I resealed the seal to flange area with some quality silicone sealant, and also treated the seal to glass area with silicone spray. After doing this the sunroof was a lot more water tight and was pretty much free of leaks. It still leaked through the screw securing the handle though!

I also think I made a posting on Fiat Forum showing or at least explaining how to remove the sunroof. I haven't been on FF for a number of years though, so you would have to search through the Uno section to find it.

Good luck and I hope you get it sorted.
