Drivers Side Window Replacement

Airstream Wannabe Looking at an '83 Excella 280 Turbodiesel, drivers window broken out, replaced with Lexan and siliconed into place. How difficult would it be to replace the glass, assuming I can find it. I don't know if there is any damage to the window frame itself, assuming there is none. Appreciate the help.

Forgot to mention I've read the excellent articles regarding replacing seals, tracks, etc. which I'm certain will require replacement as well. Any other things I should look for when I look at this MH for potential purchase (window wise I mean)?

We have the driver and passenger slider windows.

There is a fix for the driver and passenger "fixed" window, but removal of the frame is necessary.

We have that part in stock. It is made from solid aluminum plate that has been machined.

Our part # is 34549.
