I have a 1969 VW Beetle Type 1, and I'm interested in replacing the rear drivers' side popout window, and I would like to know how to remove the latch from the existing window to put it in a new window without breaking the current window the latch is in. Can you unscrew it? If you have any knowledge about this, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks!!

look on the inside of the glass, there is a very small "e-clip" retainer that holds the outer chrome "button" to the rest of the inner latch mechanism....
