Window Locks on a Soft Top

Once again I wish into the well of knowledge for an answer to a problem.
I can't lock the window on my drivers side door (Soft Top). The passenger side works great. Any way to adjust it or swap out a part???

Dave,
Before you replace a part or the whole thing, first try taking the window off the door and see if it works then.
Those window tops have a tendency to bind when installed if one of the bolts is tighter than the other.
If it works off the door, then reinstall it with the bolts loose.
As you cinch them down alternately, repeatedly try the lock to make sure it's still working.

Good luck,

Art,
I tried it off the door with the same results. Any other ideas? What parts would you / have you replaced to fix this problem.
