Hello. I just received a fancy Ridgeway grandfather clock from 1993 with all the bells and whistles. The sides are slanted - that is, the front of the case has a smaller width than the back of the case. The bottom side windows are glass and they are "S" curved. The top access window are also curved, but made of flexible plastic. They are replacements - as I was told the originals broke (at least one is replacement for sure). They have a knob in the middle to be able to remove them for access to the movement. However, they do not fit properly and it seems that they are hard to remove (impossible to remove?) for that easy access to the movement. Does anyone have experience with such type of access windows? Need ideas on how to make good fit and be easy to remove and put back.
