covering vista view windows

Okay - I searched for this topic for a fairly lengthy time and found nothing to suit.

I don't think that my upper (2) vista view windows leak and want to salvage them as best as possible. I found much info on how to remove the inner plexi-pane to clean the peeling tint. But, what about the cover? My inside sliding cover (though in good shape itself) will not slide open/closed well because the plastic guide is broken apart. I fear that one more cycle and the guide will be totally gone - preventing the cover from sliding open/close. So, has anyone found a solution to this problem? Any unique DIY covers made? I'd love to hear how some of you have tackled the issue!

I cut a piece of Reflectix that I stick up in mine to block the excess sunlight/heat from coming in, and at night to help keep the heat in.

That's an idea! I'm guessing that if I remove the sliding cover that I will need some way to *close out* the surrounding area (for cosmetic reasons). I can't recall what it would look like without the covers in place. I think you can see the wrecked plastic guides ... maybe they should both be removed via loosening the skin at the bottom?
