The urethane seal under the glass must be cut loose first. The tools are available but the seal is a killer to cut and requires much muscle power. One tool is a knife handle with a t handle and a cable to use both hands and the other is a 18 in handle that holds knife cutter blades. Be careful not to let a tool slip or its good by paint job. Once the glass is out the urethane seal must be cut out and a primer applied around the perimeter and allowed to dry, then a 3/8 bead of urethane applied. Put the stop blocks on the bottom if they have been removed. Its a two man job to place the new window in the opening. Use a tongue depressor or some other tool to go around the edge of the glass pushing the sealer in any voids. All in all once you figure the cost of all the tools and supplies you will come out better just to let a pro do the job.
