Driver Window Replacement - '06 Discovery

I just noticed about a week ago that the thermal seal broke on the small window pane above the driver side slider window as it is beginning to slightly fog up between the panes. Has anyone ever replaced the driver side window unit before? I have an '06 39S Discovery.

About a year ago I had the window seal on bedroom window (passenger side) go and had to replace it but had the dealer do it.

Fleetwood did offer a discount on the driver's side window which is about $235 plus $130 for shipping. Being my dealer is about 1 1/2 hours away I was hoping to save some time and money and do the replacement myself once I get the window.

Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike, This is a cockpit window. Are you not in a full glass state? Your insurance company should replace that window at no cost to you.

Driver,

Appreciate the comment. I'm going to give my insurance company a call tomorrow and see what they say about covering it. I know I have full glass coverage on my policy but didn't think they would cover the driver's window replacement.

Thanks again.

Mike

MIke,
I had the same failure on my drivers side window, the fixed pane above the slider lost it seal and fogged up. I had mine removed and repaired with new seals at Suncoast Designers in Hudson Florida. I do not think your comprehensive coverage will cover the window replacement unless it is broken and not for a manufacturing defect.
