'86 Sovereign Lower Window Latch won't lock
 
Window latch handle is jammed in the open position and will not move to lock the window when the latch arm in the locking position.

Can this be removed and repaired with lubricant or will it need to be replaced?

Thanks

All I can say is, don't force it down. I broke one of them a few days ago. That little part is somewhat expensive relative to its size!

Remove it and soak it in WD-40 for a day or 2.

It's problem is that the shaft is corroded.
