window PVC windows from different manufacturers have some differences - in the specific fastening elements, profile type, and so on.But the general sequence of actions is identical.Thus it is necessary to understand to what extent disassemble as "scatter everything to the ground," just does not make sense.The extra work and then add an additional problem, as yet to be able to not only collect, but so that all the elements of the leaf are securely connected and sealed.

With the order "diagnostic" window, the rules of the exact definition of "sore spot" and eliminate the defect can be found here.

How to disassemble

Remove window

Of course, you should start with this.Given the considerable weight of the sash, alone this work is better not to do.Element fixing it is a metal rod, which is enough to pull out of a landing slot.The plastic lid that covers it, is removed easily, without tools.

  • disassemble glazed windows is not recommended.When assembling the window units in the company is taking the necessary measures to ensure proper sound insulation shutters, which use special sealants and adhesives.Without knowing all the details of the technology, to carry out their own assembly quality is unlikely to succeed.In principle, such a work and does not make sense, as "packages" can not be repaired and in the case of replacement of damaged products Why take it apart?
