The panes in my front door and storm door insert are held in by molding on the exterior--no glazing putty at all.

In the event of breakage (god forbid), how do you replace glass in this instance? What about the need to caulk or ohterwise prevent water from running down and soaking into this wood or reducing its ability to damage once in gets there?

I clean old glazing out. I make sure everything is nice and clear.
Then I stuff glazing in the groove. I then bed the rest of the sash.
The glass gets slid in the top and the glazing oozes out. Settle the glass in
and put the points in.
I go back and clean up glazing and fill in any low spots.

oops, I answered the wrong post. This is for the glazing on three sides question.
