Need Advice for Resealing

Hi
I have just been given a 4ft x 1ft tank, i did a leak test and discovered a leak, i started to remove the sealant from all seams and noticed that one of the side panes has no bonding seal ie the pane is loose the other side is ok, will i have to remove the pane or can i just re seal it as is, want to get this right and take my time over it. Thanks in advance

Imo opinion I'd just redo the whole thing. Wouldn't have worth the risk. You had one faulty seal so I'd question the integrity of the rest of it

Thanks for the reply, Yes I'm thinking the same, rather do it well than end up with water all over the place, just noticed as well the braces are cracked as well.
