Re: air conditioning

Hopefully one of the Bluebird guys will jump in as every manufacturer is different, but on my bus it was very easy. I took out the screws on the trim pieces on each side of the window and took out the screws under them holding the windows in. Seriously, it was that easy. I think it was only 4 screws total.

Re: air conditioning

My Carpenter simply had 6 screws holding each window in. They were simple to remove.

Re: air conditioning

I installed auto glass for 15 years, but never on a bus [other than windshields]

Are you planning on using one of the rear windows? They should be set in rubber gaskets. You can slice the rubber gasket away with a razor knife, if you dont want to save the rubber.

If you want to save the rubber, first look outside for a seam on the outer surface. Some have this feature, it is a locking flap. Open up the flap all the way around with a flat screwdriver, then gently push out on the window. Get help if you want to save the window!

No locking flap? From the inside, press against the window near to a corner while pulling the lip of the gasket away from the window frame. Press hard at the beginning, and reduce the pressure as the window comes outv {becomes easier}. Once again, get help if you want to save the window.

All gasketed windows come out in a similar fashion. Side and rear windows should be tempered glass, and pose little risk. Windshields are laminated glass, and can hurt you, but use the same methods to remove. MUCH more care needs to be taken!
