Window Removal
#1
Does anyone know what is involved in removing the fixed portion of the drivers side window?  It's a Storm-tite brand window.  Thepane you look through to see the mirror has lost it's seal and is full of condensation.  I was thinking about getting a "David Root" DIY kit and fixing it myself.

it just uses regular rubber seals. assuming you are going to leave the entire window installed and just remove the fixed pane.

what i dont know is if they use any siki sealant or not. i would guess not, but dont know

i would be careful when popping it out so it doesnt shoot out like a projectile and explode on the ground.

i did replace all the entire windows (frames and all) on my 90 years ago. it was alot of work

I saw where it had rudder strips around the window on the outside, so just pry them out from the outside?

thats what i would do. use something plastic. be careful not to ruin the rubber so you can reuse it. then look and see if there is any adhesive holding the window in i cant imagine getting a new glass made for it would be very expensive

Got the window out, only took 3 days. Smile Used a blade to cut the sealant on the inside then used progressively thicker wooden wedges to try and gradually work it out without overly stressing it. Should have the repair kit in soon, I'll report in on how it goes reinstalling.
