    Anyone know where to get replacement latches for the sliding windows on the side of the shell of K5s? I'm talking about the latch that looks like a latch for a sliding rear window on a pickup. I have had absolutely no luck finding them.

    They have those for sale in the help section at Autozone, Kragen, pepboys, napa, etc. But they break to easily. I say get some sliding window locks from a local hardware store.

    Same latch used on the back sliding windows of pickups.

    Not sure what search is going to net youthe results you want, but a LONG time ago on this site there was a post that ID'd the company that makes them, and they will (would?) send you free replacements!

    I ordered 10, of course they all ended up being the piece that mounts to the window frame, not the latch piece that actually breaks lol.

    Screws

    And if anyone has the solution for getting those little screws out so one can replace the latches, it would be a major help too. I had to give up before I ended up breaking the side glass from frustration:crazy: :crazy: .

    Yeah, I contacted the company and they sent me a whole bag of the things. And now I don't even need them because I scrapped the cab of the pickup they were for and my Blazer has solid windows. :rolleyes:
