I don't think you'll need anything on the glass surfaces in between the glass once they've been sealed and you don't get the moisture getting between the two pieces of glass.

I was under the impression the foam has desiccant in it, hence the hermetically sealed package.... No need for anything else.

I took the window out of the entry door and I am stumped already. I don't understand how to get the glass out of the 2" thick frame. I don't want to tear something up that will be more difficult to fix. I have some pictures trying to show it and I hope someone has a clue how to get the glass from the frame.

Those 4 screws that are visible in your 2nd and 3rd picture (and 3 of them are visible in the first picture) are the solution you're seeking. Remove those 4 screws (and the plate that is associated with those screws). Then you can pry apart the frame with two screwdrivers or 2 putty knives. With the frame spread a little bit, the window will come out of the frame.

If you have a slide type window there are 2 screws in the center support that have to be removed before you try and pry the frame apart.

Thanks Ray. The next one I am doing has a slide, a stationary on the side and a stationary above the whole mess. The one I am practicing on is the entry door and it is solid. I didn't know if the coating was covering screws or rivets. Once I get through this first one I think it will all fall in place and make sense. I've been looking for a streak free glass cleaner as I have never found one that isn't. Maybe it is the cloth I use, I don't know but I am open to anyone's suggestions that they know works. I have even tried the vinegar and water, newspaper rub, ammonia and water as well as other types and brands of cleaners. They all leave streaks. Tell me what works.

Most of the window cleaners around here use steel wool in the cleaning process. I think a 00 grade.

Important: Use only the 0000 grade. (4 zeros) and only on tempered glass.

I'm not really familiar with steel wool grade but the finest grade there is would be all I'm going to use when I do mine coupled with lots of soap and water.

As with all things along this line I tried a test area first. I replaced my complete passengers side window as it could not wait it was a real safety problem tying to drive in the dark so that was the window that was tested for scratches with a sample of the wool given to me. No scratches were seen after it was dry and moved around to see several angles in the sun light.

Awesome guys! I assumed I need a lubricant.

Alan, I was in a hurry to get the info to you about the 2 screws in the center support, you would never get the thing to open up far enough without taking them out. There torks I think 20ies or so. I chickened out on my glass repairs and I'am a McGiver king of guy. I sent them out to Hudson Fla for repairs and will let you guys know how that works out. They were 3 small pieces so I took them out and shipped them we'll see.
