When fitting a composite door with side windows..... hows best to fit it? Fix the side window frames to the door frame first, or fit them into the opening? Fitted a few doors, but never with side windows. Whats the best way to fit the side windows to the door frame?

Make up the whole frame and fit it as one.

Screws and silicone normally for fitting the frames

'Combination' frames have a dedicated joining strip that connects and laps the frames. It's a case of locating the large frame first then offering in the two side windows by easing out one side at a time and screwing them together. They can all be packed and fixed as normal.

Got it fitted.... was a bit trickier than expected. Im fairly happy with it, but the door catches slightly on upper strike plate. Not really sure why, and the hinges are adjusted as far over as they will go. I suspect I'll have to accept this slight annoyance.
