Drivers and passenger window removal

Looking for some instructions on how to remove the sliding glass up front on motorhomes.
Anyone done this to replace channel felt ?

Someone must have a tutorial online. If I recall correctly, you slide the window forward to expose the window channel material. If the material is not stuck or rotted too badly, you may be able to coax it backwards out of its channel on either the top or bottom or both.
Once you have it out then slide the glass to the rear and it should either fall into a grove in the channel on the top or bottom and that will allow you to tilt the window enough to remove it. After that clean everything and install the new channel material and lip seals.

Hereís a thread with detailed instructions:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f311...all-18806.html

I just did this job, hereís the short version:

Slide window all the way forward.
Remove the channel material, at least the top section for now.
Slide the window back, lift and wiggle until the bottom of the window clears the aluminum track and you can bring the window inside with you. Donít force it, and above all donít drop it.

There are other threads on this, do an internet search for ďsliding window site:airforums.comĒ

Thanks , most I found were for the aluminum incased widows down the sides.
Will try your ideas.
Yes on don't drop, going to find some suction cups and do over grass.
