I have a 93 G20. Where can I get good quality rebuild kits for my vent window latches? I know Dorman makes them, but I was hoping for something of higher quality.

I just did the Dorman one a couple weeks ago, and I was happy with the quality. It completely eliminated the wind noise I was having and locks solidly. I had trouble finding it locally and got it on Amazon. I believe they only make the driver side kit though.

Yepper! Thanks!

I saw the Dorman kits. A1 (or 1A) Automotive has the kits for both sides, but was hoping AC Delco or GM still had them available.

I did get a set of the universal Dorman vent window locks They keep break-ins at bay. Not so sure about the quality though. If they start to rust up, EMPI (VW folks) makes the universal locks as well in stainless steel.

I'm old enough to remember when EMPI had quality parts.
About 20 years ago, we started joking that the little sticker they included with their products was a warning label.
lol
