I need to replace a bunch of plastic window latches on my I C buses, years 05 to 2011. The ends get worn off and they wont stay up anymore. My local I C dealer wants around 25 bucks for their kit which services one window, times that by 26 or so windows per bus and that gets expensive. Where do you guys get your latches?

iC has improved the latches so they have a different tip. Better than the old? Can't say.

When and what exactly did they do with them? I have a 2011 bus that has been having problems with the windows for a year, of course the windows are out of warrantee. Almost every window has one side that wont stay latched.

IC buses built August 18 2011 and after have latches made of improved material, stronger springs, improved seals and side rails made of coextruded composite material.

Why yes, the ORIGinal CHARGER is a Fastback
