I am finally getting to my last window for cleaning- yahoo!!! It's the LONG front one for my 63 Shasta. I cannot figure out how to get the keepers off - the metal pieces that hold the window glass in. I've had no problem with all the other windows- but this one has me stumped. Can anyone help?

If it’s the fairly light guage alu that snaps in be careful. I followed the suggestion of the guy at the place that sells all the hehr replacement gaskets. He said break the glass out first. Easy and cheap to get new glass but almost impossible to find those alu pieces. And they are very fragile and if bent dont work any more. Even then use a thin sharp putty knife. They sell rolls of the thin replacement seal. And make sure the glass is the same thickness. Sorry i dont remember the name at the moment but someone here knows who im talking about. Sounds drastic but wasn’t that hard or expensive. Hopefully someone has a better solution though.
I glanced mine the other day because my glass is broke and needs replacing. On mine It looks like there are retainer clips on the inside of the window. There are a few tutorials on how, I'll see if I can find them for you.
You definitely need to remove all the doors and windows to do proper repairs. Take the skins off, float or remove the roof and you'll be able to see all that needs to be repaired.
Sorry I wasn’t clear, I meant I had been wondering if I needed to remove the glass from the stationary window and reseal it but, after reading about testing it and it does not leak I do not need to. Thx
