Subject: Help with the removal of the sliding windows on a Seamaster 23

I have a 1969 Seamaster 23 that was acquired earlier this year. When running, there is a considerable rattle from the sliding windows vibrating in their tracks.

On inspection, the seals have perished away to nothing and it's now just aluminium window frame clattering away against the tracks.

From this forum, I identified the replacement window seals from seals direct and ordered them. I now have them and am faced with a new problem; How do I remove the sliding windows from the boat in order to fit the seals? There doesn't seem to be a straightforward way of doing this and it seems that the only way to free the tracks would be to unscrew the aluminium frame that runs the length of all the windows. I understand that this also holds roof up so it's not something I wish to start if there's an easier way.

Can anyone recommend the best way to remove the sliding windows so that the new seals can be fitted?
