Im notsure if youhave resolved this but it is easy if a little fiddly, 3 screws one on outer door 2 on the latch itself, undo all the latch is free, spin to remove off the bolt, once free turn upside down, this will allow u to pop the lid off the panel to access the nut, reassemble the screws ect leaving nut an cap in hand. Then re do nut pop on cap jobs a good un :D.

I've just tightened mine up on the rear passenger side.

I think it is possible to do it by simply opening the window to allow you access to 'pop' off the plastic cover (on the plastic part that fits to the glass) with a fine screw driver. Be gentle!

Under this cover is a nut. This will be loose....a 10mm socket and extension is needed to simply tighten it. I would avoid over tightening in case you break the window!!!!

If mine becomes loose again I will use some thread lock glue to retain the nut once nipped.

Mike.

Thanks for the advice from this thread. Just reattached the latch. Didn't take long, just be careful when tightening the nut.
