Moving on to the celling and found, taking it down, is really a 2 man project. I'm lucky I haven't broken/sliced anything off...

To remove the windows, undo the screw bracket things on the inside, and take a utility knife and score all the glue, inside and out, around the edges. It is super gooey and even after you score it, it will be hard to pull out, but you pull the windows in towards you, from the top, and it will make sense and work.

Re: 2000 Thomas Saf-t Liner

So did turning the bus on it's side help get rid of all the plaque from cleaning it out? Blink, blink...

Shaken, not stirred. That's what my dad said happened to me.

Re: 2000 Thomas Saf-t Liner

Thanks for the update on how to remove the windows! The putty knife worked like a champ. I'm including some pictures for the next person who wants to take this task on...

Re: 2000 Thomas Saf-t Liner

The window slides out with a little pressure. Sometimes, I had to cut the sealant on the outside as well...
