Airstream 345, 1985 sliding window vertical rubber

My sliding windows, that have the light gray vertical rubber. I purchased enough for all my windows, if I just know how to take the old off and reinstall the new.

It looks like I must remove all exterior screws, then lift the (non sliding window) up and out - is that what the procedure? Mine have been clear silicon on the tops and some sides (prevent water from coming in). I have never had that issue (probably due to the caulking).

It looks like a big job, which I am willing to do, but don't want to get into problems with the first one, IF THAT IS NOT THE CORRECT WAY to replace the vertical rubber piece.

Any suggestions?

You can probably get first hand information on this at Airstream Trailer & Motorhome Owners Community. This is a sister site of iRv2 and is an Airstream forum. There are a lot of Airstream 345 owners on the forum. Go to the motor home section .
