Side Window Repair Question

I need to replace the fogged glass in one of my side windows. I've gathered bits of advice from several threads on the subject but I have a couple of remaining questions.

1) I've been told by my RV repair tech that depending on who manufactured the window frame assembly it may, or may not, be possible to remove the center bar between the fixed and sliding panel. If there are screws holding the center bar I understand can replace only the fixed panel. If the center bar is welded in I'm told I'll have to replace the entire frame and glass assembly. I'd rather know before removing the frame assembly if I'm going to need the entire assembly or just the fixed glass panel. My information source doesn't know how to tell which frame type I have without removing it.

Does anyone know if there is a way to recognize which type of assembly I have before removing it?

2) Does anyone have a professional secret technique for breaking the seal around the frame to make removal easier?

Barry

You should be able to see the screws. If you will send me some good close up pictures I should be able to help.

Thanks, Corvette Man. There are no visible screws holding the center verticle bar. There are screws holding the inner retainer in place, that's what holds the entire frame in the wall. What I want to be sure of is that the center verticle bar between the fixed and sliding window is held by screws that would only be visible after removing the entire frame from the wall. If that is true, after removing the entire window and frame unit from the wall I should be able to remove the screws holding the verticle center bar enabling me to replace the fixed glass portion. If the verticle bar is welded in place I'll need to obtain the entire frame assembly and replace it as a unit.

I'll know for sure after removing the window, but I'd rather have the proper parts on hand when I remove the frame and window assembly.

I would suggest that you replace the entire window. Special sealant is required to set the new glass in place and also you need to make sure you protect the insulated glass where it sits in the frame. Failure to do this will result in seal failure again very quickly. 39 years in the insulaterd glass business/ To find out whose window is used call the manufacture of the coach. They should be able to give you a part number. Good luck.
