Window Frame Broken

Picture is not good, sorry. We have three of these type windows in our 2015 Wildcat. Several days ago while one of them was open, the glass fell down. The good news is it did not break. I was able to put the top metal frame back on and lock the window.
Is there a way to repair it without ordering a new one? The only frame is across the top of the glass and it appears to just be a press fit. Thanks for any advise.

Tom,
I would use a clear silicone adhesive/sealant.

There is a rubber gasket but no evidence of any adhesive. Maybe there should have been?

Different style of manufacturing than the adhesive style. Those are just a friction fit. Good chance that the rubber has just deteriorated and shrunk a bit. You can take the old rubber edge strip to a glass shop and they should be able to get you squared away with a new piece. Adhesive ay just make a bigger mess for you down the road.
