    They should be fairly straight forward to slide back up, might stick a bit on the rubber seals though. Mine used to slide down and now I just have a small screw at the bottom end to keep it in place.

    Just shift them back up where they belong, tack in place and whack a load of silicone in there.

    Silicone can cause more problems.
    The panel slides down due to its expansion and contraction over day and night. It 'creeps' down the slope. Any silicone would disturb the rubber seal as it moves and cause more leaks that would be even more difficult to put right.

    I will post some pics tomorrow,
    Might try the pushing back up the slope.
    If i have to replace them and can get them out will i have to replace the seals and are they commonly available? And does the 'frame' just clip back on?

    It is usually a clip together job. The rubber seals may depend on the manufacturer if they are available as spares or if they are standard parts.

    They might be fine, depends on how old it all is.
