I was replacing my vent window handles and suddenly the glass shattered. The frame is still in the door. I do not want to remove the vent window frame. I have removed all the broken glass from the frame and the thin stainless glass frame is still in tact.
Can I just put a little weatherstrip adhesive in the channel and insert the vent window glass?
Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure the only right way is to use glass setting tape.  It wedges and seals the glass into the frame.  Weatherstrip adhesive or silicone won't give you the same result and probably will fail over time.  Check with a glass shop on whether they can install the glass without having to remove the frame.

Thx Petes. Now if I can get the vent window handle installed without breaking the glass, I'll be in good shape.

If you go to a glass shop, ask if the handle can be installed before the glass is set in the frame.  Seems it would be much easier to do it that way.
