The window of my sliding door fell out. The glass is not broken but the pivot latch is. I bought a new latch from the dealership. Can I just push the glass back in its grove and just replace the broken latch or is there more to repairing this displaced window? Like do I have to apply some special glue etc??

No, I believe it is just floating in the bracket, and the latch is installed to keep it from coming out. I used to replace dozens of these latches in the 90's at a Lincoln Mercury dealer.
