Alenco vinyl window glazing

A quick learner from Ridgecrest, CA says:
Please see attached photos of glazing for our Alenco dual pane single hung windows. The glazing has cracked on several windows so we would like to replace before putting the house on the market.

I actually just recently repaired an Alenco sash. I used our 55-080 to replace the glazing. I did, however, have to cut down the snap in leg about 1/8" shorter to fit. What I did was cut along the bottom edge where it flares out. Other than that it fit fine in the sash. Let me know what you think.
A quick learner from Ridgecrest says:
I think the 55-80 has a lip at the upper edge that will prevent the glazing from fitting flush with the window glass as the original glazeing does.

Need OEM fit.

Hmm... Some customers have tried our 55-029-6 vinyl snap in. Please review to see if this would be better.
