Rear windows latches

The dealer wanted $40 each for replacement latches for the rear fold out windows on my 2001 Tacoma. That just seemed outrageous to me.

Anyone have other sources or repair solutions?

I did search these threads, didn't find anything.

That happened to me too on my 02, I just decided to keep them that way because it's not like I use them that often. Do you use those windows that much to justify dropping prossibly 80 bucks on them? I certainly don't

I had one replaced once. Then one winter they both broke on the same day. I left them that way. Dealership didn't notice when I traded it in.

The windows are loose without being latched securely. And I am trying to sell it, maybe.

They must have been broke when I bought it last December. I didn't check them unfortunately. The dealer would have fixed them.

And no, if I keep it, they will most likely never be opened. Some previous owner obviously smoked.

Yeah,,,$86 after tax... cheep plastic part.

I bought the OEM latches from Toyota, but how do I take out the interior panels to attach them?

the right rear one on my 04 did the same thing. i'd love to hear any thoughts on how to fix these, i actually like driving with ALL the windows open so any fix other than the stealership would be nice

I did this and it was relatively easy. You'll need metric sockets. The hardest part was getting in and out of the back of the truck. See http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1st...w-latches.html
