    The little latch on the litlle window has become really loose, almost to the point where it doesn't want to hold the window shut. Has anybody ever had this problem or know how to tighten it down?

    Thanks!!

    There is a rubber washer on the outside of the latch (Between the rounded knob and the glass itself. I'll bet yours split (like mine) and fell off. I wrapped a few rubber bands around and around this knob, against the glass, the rubber bands compress etc when you close the latch inside, the more rubber bands, the tighter your window. It also helps when you're doing it to push the whole latch assembly outwards, thus making the gap on the outside for the rubber bands bigger...Try it, it works

    Go to your local auto parts store and you can buy a rebuild kit for that latch. It is called a wing window.
