Leaking window

We have recently discovered a leak in one of the side rear windows in our Hymer C644 (2002). There is water trapped in between the plastic panes. Any suggestions as to where I could get this repaired or replaced in Dublin?

I got a caravan window made from them a good few years ago,it was a slightly different shade but didn't matter as it was on the back.

Can you see where the water got in?

A repair is a lot easier sometimes as to match the exact window can be tricky,

You need to try and find where the leak is and see about sealing that. As most of the windows aren't hermetically sealed if you look around on the inside edge and check if there is a tiny hole, which tells you the window is not sealed, then I would drill a small hole on one of the lower corners, drain and vacuum the water out then plug this hole.you may need to tilt the window or van to get all the water into one corner.
It will be a much cheaper fix then replacing the window.

There might well already be a factory drilled hole in the window along bottom with a little bung in it. See if you can find that to drain the water out once you have removed the window.
