Based on my other post of a leak in the cap seal. I would like to repair the damage to my window sill. With the water leak it has swollen and separated at the joint. I cannot figure for the life of me how to remove it. It is secured very firmly. I cannot get to it from the basement storage. My end cap angles out at the point of where the window sill is. I believe that is where they have packed it with insulation below the window and above the floor. Without having to remove the interior wall, has anyone got an idea of how to remove the sill? My fear is that it may be screwed on through the aluminum frame and that it can't be reached without the wall removal. I am not about to tear my trailer apart if I can help it.

Ultimatly, I want to make a template of the sill and make a new one and reformica the new one.
thanks

Most windows are two piece out side and in side they screw to squees in the frame ,the screws are accessed from the inside .The trim comes off to get at the screws.Some have the opposite screws are out side in the rubber or plastic trim .works the same the whole window comes out in two parts of the frame. There is no sill in most windows. Hope this helps. Skipper entry level over fifty years.

The window sill is apart from the window itself. I was looking to remove just the window sill and not the entire window. The sill is maybe an inch or two below the window. It is made of formica and particle board. The particle board has swollen due to the small leak I had in the end cap..

thanks
