Crown / carpenter - disassemble driver window?

My driver slider on my bus is a mess.. the seals that hold the glass in and the glass itself is shot.. I found a giuy that can re-set new glass but he needs the sashes taken off the bus..

I didnt see exactly how to take it apart.. of course i want to take it apart with the intention it goes back together... while apart im going to replace all of the weather stripping on it.. it fits kind of loose even when its closed..

Maybe I don't understand you correctly, but don't the glass shops usually handle the disassembly? I understood they preferred it that way to get the right size and fit with the rubber seal.

they will remove the glass from the frame but wont remove the sliding sashes from the bus... this shop needs the sashes on his bench..

he can make them in a couple days.. so I planned on removing the sashes then putting the bus away in its indoor storage facility each night when im done working on it at my house...

I found a row of screws at the back of the window and one up at the front.. but cant see how to get to the screws across the top and bottom... unless there arent any?
I have not yet removed a window from the bus but I assumed thered be screws all the way around.
