Has anyone had a problem with their rear sliding window latch coming off? Mine broke off completely. What do you guys suggest i use to glue it back on, super glue or do they make a special glass glue???
THANKS

call a glass shop if you want, i dont know how you are but if you like doing things yourself and cheap then you can get the rear view mirror adhesive and glue the tab back on. that adhesive can be found at any parts store where all the other adhesives, silicones and loctites are. the process is plain and simple, just read the directions and follow. this process is what the glass shop will do minus the labor charge. either way its a easy fix. i have glued many tabs on for sliders and rear view mirrors.

sorry 4cstr, i just read your other post and saw that you tried the glue yourself, i personally have not had a problem with it but there can be a bad apple of the bunch as i have heard of people not having good results. i used to know a brand of 2-part epoxy that bonded so hard to glass that it would take a chunk of glass out if you pulled the tab off intentionally and i have seen rear view mirror glue do that too. I have also heard of people having bad results of trying the rear view mirror glue themselves. It could have been bad/cheap glue. no offense to you on your failed attempt.
