Seitz window replacement

In my earlier question about cracked window pane, I got the advice about the perspex simply sliding into a channel.

Question is....does it slide from metal at top of pane to metal of window, ( very difficult ) or have I got to separate metal from perspex and fit the metal bit first

then slide the perspex into the metal slot ? Looks easier !
I hope that makes some sort of sense to someone !

Is this any good Bill? At about 2:30 it's talking about getting it out so I'm guessing the fitting is just the reverse of that which will be to present to the rail on the wall, slightly above horizontal so the two metal parts can engage.

Hi, jiwawa.
Thanks for your lead. I wish it were that simple.
Having the knowledge that the windows come out just by sliding, I foolishly decided to remove a window to polish out some bad scratches

picked up on our last trip. We have no electric near the parking spot.

When I lifted the window above horizontal, it simply fell into my hands.
However, replacing it has become a nightmare.
I have a couple of poor pictures showing that the window fits under the rounded corners of the window frame shown grey and now scratched !

via the metal strip which seems to be permanently attached to the perspex.
This is very difficult to fit.
I was wondering if the metal attached to the perspex is actually attached permanently or simply " welded" together by time. Sliding into this would seem to be easy.

So far, no replies.
Your video has a nice simple way of attachment !
Cheers
Bill

Took Hymer to the experts this morning.
Window needed three strong guys to reinstall the window, which did not slide in, because the designer installed an anti sideways slot and pin to stop sideways movement.
It cost me very little for their welcome help.
Tomorrow... it's going to rain !
