    One of the small plastic pieces that locks the quarter window open has broken. Anyone had this issue and where can I get a replacement?

    Hey, I have 2 daughters that live in Newark, Del. !!! As far as your question, I've read a couple post earlier about this same thing, I don't know if its an issue but your local Toyota dealer (or better still, wrecking yard) should be able to hook you up with new latch,,,,,:cool:

    Both of mine were broken when I bought my truck. I dont mind though because they stay closed and I never use them. I just have to remind people not to try and use them.

    They are way easier to break into though.

    Well with the way mine are broken I can just kind of put them back together and latch them and they stay locked. But if you go to unlatch them, they fall apart. Ill have to look closer sometime since I havent looked at them in over a year.

    I do this too. Never open the windows, but they're broken on both my Taco and my Tundra and it annoys the crap out of me when I happen to think of it (which isn't often since they're never used).

    I just got the latch assembly from my local dealer: $32

    There was another thread I could not find of a guy that makes a replacement billet piece for this specific issue. I dropped him a couple of emails to see if he still makes them, but no response so I had to go to the dealer.
