Entry Door window replacement

I have a 2010 Itasca Sunstar Class A and the entry door window was broken. I'm trying to take to take the frame out of the door and can't figure it out. I took the screws holding the inner part of the frame off, and I can't seem to push the outer frame out. Is it just glued in place or are there hidden clips that I can't see.
Thanks..
Gary

Now is the perfect time to decide if you want a stained glass window, one-way window, or tinted glass.

There is a sealant behind the outside frame. You will need to run a thin putty knife around as you push to break it loose. I upgraded the door window on my class C to one with a shade.

It should be "glued" in with butyl tape as the main sealant. The stuff is pretty sticky. The window is sandwiched with the tape on the outside portion. Carefully try to pry off at an outside corner. Once you get it started you will have the leverage, and courage, to keep pulling. Replacing the window, once you see how it comes apart, should be pretty simple.

I will try to get a putty knife and work the glue loose.

My window consists of 2 sheets of glass in a rubber edge, and that is in a grove inside the outer part of the frame. I wonder if a heat gun will help loosen glue???

I will keep you guys posted.

It’s more just very sticky than a glue. Same black tar-like stuff that leaks out from the seams of windows.

Butyl tape is usually the main sealant of all windows, vents, etc and caulking is used between seams as a secondary sealant. Using both pretty much guarantees a good seal. Body seams usually only use caulking-type sealants and are much more prone to leaks.

It can be seen in the video while he is removing the door window.
