    Hi. First, thanks for reading. I have a 'cottage style' double glazed window, divided into six panes. Each indivdual pane measures 24 x 20 cm.Two of them are cracked, but I don't know if they are separate panes or in fact two or even one large pane with the wooden strips dividing them.

    I'd like some advice as to how to fix these. I'm a bit wary of bashing out double glazed panels, or can I bash them out and have made replacement panels? I don't really want to order new windows with frames if I can help it.

    Advice welcome, thank you.

    Its clear to me that its one complete pane as why would the crack affect 2 small panes, think about it - if they were all individual units the crack would only affect the one square and not creep onto the next. What you have is one double glazed unit with individual spacer bars within the cavity to give the impression of individual panes, quite common and an expensive effect

    Forgot to add, yes you can remove yourself but being above the conservatory roof will be very tricky, if possible try and remove the opener completely. Once done take the complete sash to a sealed unit manufacturer and let him copy what you have, he may even fit it for you but you probably will have a bit of making good to do filling holes and repainting areas

    You do not need a new window though, just the glass

    Crank 39, thank you for your helpful reply. Of course, I had considered it being one pane due to the crack propagation, but I wanted a second opinion before I proceeded.
