Entry Door Window Removal

My entry door window is fogged and I need to remove it to repair. Anybody removed theirs? I was about to start removing it but I thought I'd ask here before I broke it. It looks like there could be a couple of ways to remove it - remove the insulated glass only or remove the frame and disassemble it on the bench.

I was quoted $625 for new glass so I thought It was worth a try to repair it. I just got through repairing one of the bedroom swing-out windows that was fogged and it turned out pretty good.

Thanks for any advise

Ron

I just removed mine frame and all. Took it to a glass shop and they redid it for $250 bucks. A glass shop can get you any kind of glass you need fairly inexpensive.

Did you remove the 20 screws to remove the frame? Was it held in with butyl tape?
Thanks
Ron

I removed all the screws. It had a black kind of butyl tape behind it. The glass company included it and gave me a roll to reinstall.

I removed the window, separated the panes, cleaned them and polished them for a while with my buffer, cleaned them again and reassembled with the components I bought from a glass repair business in Oregon.

This bedroom window is tinted and that might be part of the reason it looks ok. I already have all the material to repair a couple more so I thought it would be worth a try to repair the entry door window which is clear.
