    My 3 year old loves to have the rear sliding window open recently, so i have been using it every day. Yesterday when I shut it, the window slid past the latch. When I looked I saw the stationary part of the latch (not the part on the slider pane, but where it latches to) was loose. Looking at it, it appears to just be glued in place. Is that right, or is that something the previous owner did? Can i just gorilla glue it back in place? It doesn't seem very effective/theft proof/sturdy if that is the case (of course it would take a small person to get into the truck that way i guess).

    Mine did the same. First attempt i used whatever superglue i had sitting around.. it came rifht back off...so i ended up using a glue for glass. Clamped it for a few days and haven't had any issues in few yrs now..
