Leaking side window

One of our glass (laminated glass) side windows sprung a leak. It is nothing serious and it only leaks a couple of drops every now and then under certain conditions. None the less, it should not leak and therefor it must be fixed. The window is bonded into a recessed epoxy frame. It seems like we will have to remove the window, clean everything and then bond it back in place. The original bonding was done with SikaFlex - not sure which one though. Some helpful folks at Cruisersforum.com suggested using a thin knive blade or two thin and flexible putty knives to cut through the seal. I also read up on some bonding/selant properties from SikaFlex and it seems like Sikaflex-296 is the right product for the job. I still have to find out about etching the glass to ensure a good bond.
