    You might have to remove window channels above door frame top and either side which are long ones then remove glass from the top

    He can't get the glass loose from the bottom channels. Usually stuck in.

    Hi Mellin

    You have to remove some of the screws in the vertical channels so they can pull away from door and then the glass will slide out the bottom.

    The tags will have to be bent open a bit too.

    Regards
