It might be time to purchase a new window. However with that being said, it is not impossible to repair the louvers in a jalousie window. I would suggest using some type of pop-rivet to reconnect your louver back to the window. You may be able to find replacement louvers, but it might be hard to find ones that line up for you and most jalousie window manufactures are no longer in business.

I have several broken slats of glass....where can I get replacement glass for my windows? Haven't been able to find the panes to replace.

You will need to go to your local glass shop, if they do not stock jalousie glass they will custom make it out of 1/4" thick glass and smooth the edges.
