    It looks like it has been repaired before and modified with a larger square base. I recommend to lightly sand the glass and base with a dremel grinder stone and use a two komponent epoxy glue.

    I have found that Loctite 233841 Super Glass Glue works just fine.

    Loctitie 326 in conjunction with Loctite 7649 activator works extremely well. All of the quarterlight window catches in my Dinos are mounted using that and only one has fallen off in the last 6 years. A bit of cleaning and then re-fitting using these products has seen it stay firmly in place for the past 2.5 years. Mounting the catch using a small shim has also helped reduce the pressure on them.

    Thanks all. Got some Locktite epoxy. Now, I just have to wait for the Colorado snow to let up and the temp to get a little warmer before I apply. Thanks again for all of your help. Have a great holiday season.

    I reduced the sealing pressure by hot knife trimming the black plastic striker.
    :)
    When you close the latch there is too much rise to the jamb point leading to breaking forces. Reduce those forces, trim the back side of the black plastic jamb to retain visible profile. A little tricky as it is double rivetted in blind.
    This is best done as the frame is out of the car
