2005 Tacoma Rear Window Latch - piece missing

New to the forum and to Tacomas. Just bought an '05 Tacoma extended cab 4x4. As I pointed out in the picture, I'm missing the piece that the rear window latches to. I went to Toyota and they told me I'd need a whole new back window... Any advice?? Thanks!

Re: 2005 Tacoma Rear Window Latch - piece missing

(1) Welcome to CT!

(2) Toyota wasn't lying ... The 2005+ rear window assembly was listed as a single all-in-one assembly / unit. I can't find any parts references citing individual sub-components within the rear window assembly.

My advice would be to take it to a window / glass shop and see if they can add a reasonably-secure latch for less than buying the whole assembly.
