Replacement latch for OEM slider

Recommended Posts

I needed a latch for the rear slider I'm going to install in my truck. Decided to take a shot at an available Ford latch F65Z-1527158-AA. It's a little large, and I had to modify it a tad, but it will work for the OE slider window.

Here you can see where I filed down the corners. The latch measured 1.5" and the opening it needs to slot into measures 1.25"IMG_3686.JPG.ae97701169ac070275e194d9f710b41a.JPG

 

There was also a small post that kept the latch from swinging all the way down that I cut off so it can engage well with the rail.

And here's what it looks like on the window.

That looks good. I wonder if that could all be 3D printed?

It probably could. It has a stupid simple spring to keep it closed, and pivots on a roll pin. You could probably get it modeled and scale it down enough to where you don't have to trim it. But it was only $12 so unless you already had all the tools idk how cost effective it would be.
