Trojan F36 Salon Main Windows Shifted

Post by pwollsch » Sat May 07, 2016 7:13 pm

The main windows that go from the windshield to the sliders on the sides of the salon have both shifted towards the the cockpit about 1". They are in there tight, and cannot be moved by hand and I am assuming I need to disassemble or somehow relive the pressure on them to move them back into place.

The sliding windows and screens still move.

Any ideas?

I am confused... and I think most others would be too. The sliding windows still move, but the sliders won't... what are you talking about????

Can you explain your problem again in terms of 'front windows', 'side windows', and 'sliding door to the cockpit' ?

I am not real clear on what is going on . has the glass moved or have the frames that the glass goes in moved ? Or have the front side windows slid back ? Photos would help a lot .


I can look at mine today if I know what to look at .

I think I know what you are asking.....now one of those windows on our f32 did the same thing ....so to get it back I sprayed liberally with silicone spray lube , loosened it up and slid it back to the front window frame (CAREFULLY).took lots of time....that is all I can add and it would only apply if the f36 windows are the same....one thing that I have read about is many people having to replace cracked or broken side windows, so maybe this is an issue....

Sorry for poor description.
I think last response is direction I was going.

The windows that shifted in their frame are the large fixed ones at the front of the salon that meet with the windshield frame.

I will try moving them again and get pics

They are usually held in place by small screws through the bottom frame. Loosen these and you should be able to push them forwards easily then re-tighten those screws to hold them in place.
