G'Day kman1,

I have a 73 Viscount and I took out the 4 corner windows and squared the corners and replaced the centre windows with smaller ones, mainly to stiffen the van and keep out the dust.

So if you have removed the 18 or 20 screws that hold the window, the only thing holding it in is the sealant they used when assembling the van.

From the inside of the van, use a piece of 3x2 wood and hammer to knock the frame out by working your way around the frame. You may also have to use a pinch bar, or a big screw driver, to lever out the window at the same time as well.

Be careful not to distort the window frame.

Hope this helps.

Regards Jim-Bob
