    How do I take apart the vent window lock so I can retighten it? The bolt that goes through the glass as come loose from the lock mechanism. If there is a way to fix it without taking it apart that would also be helpful. Thanks!

    There is a roll pin that is pressed into the handle part of the latch....you have to press/punch out the roll pin to get the handle off to tighten the bolt.
