Hi the window will come out by removing the screws from the inner ring. Then clean around the window, cutting thru any silicone gently pry and cut along window to remove. Now clean the window, and area on coach scrape off old sealant, and clean with acetone. Now apply new putty tape to the window, pressing firmly so it does not fall off, hold window in place while someone else screws the inner ring in.................Let the window sit for a bit, trim off excess putty around it, then seal with a small bead of silicone. Then you are done, please get back to me for clarification if necessary, thanks ... Michael
Hi, the standard replacment seal is putty tape, with a silicone sealant applied to the window once the putty has been trimmed off, it comes on a roll. I use 1/8" x 1". The screws will be sheet metal screws. When you apply the tape to the window, a continuous piece pressed onto the frame. No oil or grease is used. There is no time frame for the seal to be replaced, it is a maintanance issue, you want to check the window seals once a year, and if issues are noted, clean off the silicone seal, and reseal. I hope this is helpful, please get back to me if necessary, thanks Michael
