I can help you, but I need to know if it's wooden windows or pvc, by your post I take it that the're wooden. What do you mean by 'original old frames and fittings?' This does not effect replacing the double glazed unit.

Thanks Tim. They are oldish but serviceable pvc frames with clip-type beading. Can you get replacement glass units, and can they be replaced without breaking the existing pvc furniture. Cheers
