It already sounds like he's in over his head if he doesn't know the tools he needs, but they can be purchased at a local glass shop, special lube and sealer for the weatherstrip around the glass and framework, the install cord makes the job go a lot faster.Make sure he uses a new weatherstrip around the glass as the old one could be stretched or started to rot.
