TDL-How to replace one broken pane?

Posted by jamboy_md (My Page) on

I have a custom solid wood entry door with matching sidelites. All of the panes are real True Divided Lite. They are sealed double pane with tempered glass. One sidelite (thankfully interior) pane shattered. The doors/sidelites were here when we bought the house. I have checked everywhere for the manufacturer to no avail. Thankfully the glass company shipped me the stock pane but now I need help in removing the existing pane (including the metal spacer and butyl? edge that are secured with some type of adhesive. The muntins are standard Ogee sticking. I don't want to replace the entire set of sidelites. Is there a way to replace this one pane? I have pictures (and dimensions) if needed.

Thanks

Remove the wooden stops on the inside or outside or both and pull the old pane out. Don't worry about breaking it. The new will go in much easier than the old one came out.
