Removal of Curved Window

I have a 72 Ambassador that has water stains between the glass on the front curved window. This window was repaired by a prior owner and is covered in caulking. I looked at the other one and cannot see how it comes apart. I cannot find an existing thread on this. Does anyone know of a picture step by step or has an exploded parts view of this window. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like a hack job; those are the hardest to fix since the window sizes changed from
coach to coach. I'll bet the previous owner got one too small & tried to caulk it shut.
This is something for the pros; they'll add a little piece of metal to make up the
difference. Been there.

The wing window is usually a dual pane assembly, and is not very easy to disassemble and put back together without breaking one of the panes. If is doesn't leak now, Try removing the mounds of caulking, and resealing it with vulkem. Our trailer has high water marks between the panes, even after I drained the water out of it.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
