rear deflector latches

I am finally getting around to minor issues on the car that need attention. The previous owner felt like large amounts of black silicone was the way to keep the latches on the rear windscreen closed first question are the latches replaceable ? Anyone have a part number ? Does the aftermarket make a more robust latch ?

They are replaceable...I think I bought them from Suncoast. Helps a lot, but one of mine only lasted a year until it started to rattle a bit again (Genuine Porsche...so what can you do). Maybe silicone is the answer!
