Would anyone happen to know what size punch (very small) to use to knock out the pin that holds the window latch on the shaft ??? I need to buy one to do the job. And do you know who sells the replacement latch and knob, I understand their hard to find. Thanks.

Yea I'd either use the head of a finish nail or point side filed flat.. just find the right sized nail.

3/32 welding rod has worked for me in the past, not too long and hold it with pliers.
