How to dismantle sliding windows?

Hi all,

I found a Hyundai H100 sliding door here in France and it has a sliding window (I have fixed glass window). The windows look like the one from the Mitsu.

They need some work to look clean again but I struggle on how to approach the restoration ... :-) How to get the two glasses out? Just remove the run channel gasket and try to get the glass out but how? It seems that there is a sort of frame that if removed could make the whole work a lot easier.

Thanks!

Ok cool! Many thanks!

It seems that the trick is to pull up the frame to get the glasses out. Didn't think about this one!!! :-)

I'll get back here if I am stuck.

OK, done. It worked fine. Next, I have to remove the tinting film on the windows -- looks like it would take some time as it is quite old.

Thx again.
