Anyone replaced their window lock?

The window over my couch that has the red lock for securing the window closed, broke.I slid the window closed and the lock was slightly down and it snapped in half. It is plastic.,
Anyway they are riveted in place. I have to call atwood or Winnebago and get a replacement.
Are there alternative solutions from Lowes, Home Depot or a glass co.

The latchs on my '03 Minnie were broken. I called Winnibago and had new latchs and directions to drill out the rivets and replace with the bolts they supplied. I hope it's that easy for you!

I did the same as eieioh (ed). Very easy repair with kit from Winnebago. I just went to their site where they show the parts for my particular unit and got the exact part number needed to order.

Called Lichtsinn Winnebago and ordered the replacement. Thanks for the replies. It comes with a bolt, so I hope drilling out the rivit will be easy.

It is real easy, but go with a very slow speed on your drill. The rivet goes away fast.
