Windlet Handle Broke, How do I fix it?

I went to open my passenger side windlet and the handle broke off. I have no idea how to go about fixing this... Do I need to replace the entire window?

you can get just the handle. on lots of trucks over the years and as far as i know they are all interchangeable.

I was able to find the handle on LMC for $10
I needed to order a few window seals from them anyways! Hopefully I can figure out how to remove the broken old one and replace it with the new one!

Post up how you did the repair. I just broke my drivers side one last. Be good to have tips on how it's done. Thanks Jeep

Turns out the entire corner window needs to be replaced, frame and all.
The frame and glass ran about $110 with shipping.

I'll post up pictures when I figure out how to get this new window in!

So why do they sell just the handle? Or was it part of the frame that broke in your case?

According to my glass guy, there is a tab that is attached to the window frame. That tab is usually what breaks off. In which case, the entire frame must be replaced.

I think that they sell the handles for people restoring their interiors.. My old handles were very sun faded.
