    Went camping this weekend and slept in my truck. Damn it was cold. Anyway, I opened the sliding window during the night fro a few minutes for some fresh air, and when I closed it, I closed it on that cheesy plastic latch, and it snapped off. I can still rig it so it holds, but I want to get another one. Does anyone know where I can get one? thanks

    I would guess a junkyard. Or get the part number goto a gm dealer.

    Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down.

    Go to http://www.southco.com. Click on "Request a sample". Then click on "Request Product Evaluation Sample".Type in some info and the part number is 07-10-201-12. They sent me 10(you can request as much as you want) latches like the stock ones for FREE!!!

    Thanks, I ordered 10. Are they good or like the stock ones? It doesn't matter either way, but I was just wondering...

    Now, Corby, you naughty lad!!!!! I checked out that website, and it looks like you're supposed to register as a company to recieve free samples.......they're probably hoping that the few samples they're sending out are going to result in an order of a few thousand from a corporation that's going to use them for mass applications......How exactly did you register?

    Once again, you're very naughty......TEEHEE!!!!!!!!

    You really don't have to register, but it asks for a company name later. I just put may name Inc.[​IMG]

    Blazer Guy,
    Thanks for the helpful hint. Thought I'd have to go to the junkyard for these. Instead I'm get 10 brand new ones for free, just sent in my request. Thanks, - Jay

    Boy, after what I went through at a chevy dealer parts dept. yesterday, I found it's a good place to buy a hat or a model, but NOT the .25 part a guy needs!!!!!!!!!!

    Gopher,

    The window latch may be worth .25, but the Chevy dealer will charge you a tad bit more.
