Removing Old Entry Door Window Frame
The first step to removing the old entry door window frame is to take the door off of its hinges and lay it, exterior side down, on a flat, elevated surface. With your flathead screwdriver, unscrew all the screws along the door frame. Once all the screws are unscrewed, take the frame off. Now you should be able to remove the door, so the glass is alone. Flip the piece of glass over and remove the other entry door window frame.
Replacing Entry Door Window Frame
Grab your new entry door window frame, the exterior side first. With your caulk gun, caulk the inner edge that connects the glass and the outer edge that connects to the door. Once you have caulked everything, take the frame and set it on top of the glass. Flip the glass over and put the door back on. Now, grab the inside entry door window frame and set it into place. Screw the screws back into the frame. Once this is done you can now put the door back on its hinges. And now give yourself a pat on the back because you have just replaced an entry door window frame!
