Rear hatch latch



I have just bought a 82 ce. The rear hatch glass is not wanting to open up. The glass seems to be out of place a little bit. At the front edge, it looks like it might have shifted back about 3/8 of an inch. When I pull on the release nothing much seems to happen. i don't want to force it open and possibly break the glass. There is enough of a gap at the front that it makes a lot of wind noise, not to mention water leak. I have ordered an assembly manual to get a grasp on the design of the latch....but until then does anyone have any ideas??
