Thanks. I might not have needed to go all the way along the side with the sandwich, but since the failure was so catastrophic with the stop piece breaking off, and given the age of the skylight, I thought it best. I need to shine it up a little to remove the JB spillover. This fix addressed two problems - 1) the stop piece failure and 2) minimizing failure of the latches (which is the weak link in the skylight’s design).

Mine was cracking and breaking from the Florida sun. It wasn't worth replacing at 700.00 bucks but I did it anyway. I'm still thinking of just having my guy put in a skylight and take the new one out and sell it. I pretty much stay away from the roof work as I'm not that good at fixing leaks and stuff. It is a ridiculously expensive part.

Unless you buy one from Europe, then it is fairly reasonable. It is, however, not a durable part.
