Fixing a Removable Glazing Panel


I have an Andersen W4 casement window with broken glass in the interior removable glazing panel. Andersen is no longer selling the glazing panels from pre-1989 windows. I can break up the glass to remove it, but how does the glazing panel frame come apart in order to insert a new pane? Are the corners press-fit together, so that I should just tap them apart? Thanks.

Many local glaziers will be able to make a replacement insulated panel for the window.
Well, they can around here.

If possible, I would like to keep the frame of the glazing panel--it is one of three adjacent windows and they all match. I don't see any screws holding the frame together, and the glass is a little loose in the frame, so if I can figure out how to open the sections of the frame then I (or a glazier) could replace the glass and close up the frame. There are seams between the frame pieces in the corners, that's why I thought the sides were pressed-fit together and could be knocked apart.

The glass is removeable from the wood frame. There are 3 critical dimensions to make sure the new panel fits. Length and width of the glass and the thickness of the spacer between the glass.

Thanks. I have the glazing panel out of the window. It's a thin metal frame that holds the (broken) glass. I want to take apart the frame to replace the glass. The frame isn't riveted and doesn't seem to be glued but maybe press-fit together? The sides, top and bottom appear to be four pieces. The glass is slightly loose in the frame.

It's been over a year since you posted, but the metal frames come apart. There are four screws located at the corners. Simply pry back the aluminum fin to expose the screws and disassemble the frame. When you replace the glass be sure to reglaze or caulk to prevent condensation between the panes. And while you're at it, check to make sure the weep holes are cleaned out or again, you'll get condensation between the panes.
