SW Rear Window Clip - Easy one!

Hi all,

So finally recovered my headliner... looks great and only cost $200. PIA to get out and in but worth it... thanks Barry for the help.

While everything was out, I got the windows tinted by the installer broke the head off the little screw that holds the clip/opening latch to the side window (2nd image). It seems like the would just pop off completely now but there seems to be something else holding it. I didn't want to pry and break the window.

Any one have any suggestions? Or know how that piece comes off?

Thanks.

Hmmm... I was hoping the solution would be if I scraped the exterior plastic cap off with a razor... it would reveal another screw from the outside... that would release the clip and I would just need to glue the exterior cap back on.

Anyone done this before? If I use a drill... I know I will crack that window.

I just checked and stuck a piece of paper between the latch and the interior window... that broken screw is no longer holding the plastic latch... the paper passes through but gets stuck higher up.

i replaced mine when someone broke the side window on my truck ... buy the new parts and you'll see how it fits together.

Update... solved.

Thanks Jason for the parts number... helped me figure this all out. So when you remove the visible screw, the catch SHOULD pop right off revealing another screw underneath that which secures it to the plate on the outside through a rubber spacer. That's how it is attached.

Problem is one of my PO in his infinite wisdom decided to epoxy the rubber spacer to the latch itself... so it wouldn't budge. I ended up soldering (drilling near windows still make me nervous) all the plastic off until I got to a hole that I could unscrewed the second screw. Then took the catch off and and hammered the rubber piece off.

Some images and assembly diagram for future reference. RoversNorth stocks most pieces except the rear plate and the rubber spacer.
