Plastic Window Edging

Hello Everyone, New Here.

I am having the hardest time tracking down the plastic window edging that goes around the glass. All of the edging has dried and cracked. If you could give me an idea of where to find it, I would greatly appreciate it. Also if you have a good idea on how to remove it and install it I would appreciate it too.

Thank you!

It is very likely that the window in question will be more expensive to retrofit/repair than it would be to replace.

If the manufacturer did not intend on making a product that would last, it is very likely they are not still in business.

Could you track down a label on the window to ID the manufacturer or supplier?

I agree with Windows on Washington... I'd add that replacing the plastic pieces won't do anything for that rotted wood. In fact, the whole frame will probably fall apart if you attempt to do so.
