Sliding windows help '81 28' Classic

My wife & I are redoing the interior of our MH, Floors are done, seats goucho beds all redone. No point in doing it and still having leaky windows. We resealed both windows in the cockpit believe it or not without much cursing or grief.
The sliding salon windows are not as straightforward to remove. We are very nervous of breaking the glass. Any thought on how to get them out without breaking them.

Any thoughts, links or pics would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks folks,
Chris & Denise

Hi Chris and Denise,

Welcome to the forum. I have an '82 28 footer. One of the projects ahead of me is all of my windows also. There is lots of info here on the forum on how to do the windows. Someone will be posting shortly on what to search for or will provide some links. Since we both have the same basic model, I would love to see pics of what you have done. Check out the thread "Dadstoy" for all that I have done to my 280!

Did you ever find out how to get the sliding windows out and replace the seals?
