Hi I've got a double glazed front door panel that has misted. many sites
i've visited recommend replacing the panel, fine if it was plain glass but
this panel has a decorative glass feature, is it not possible for the unit
to be stripped of it's seal and a new seal fitted?

The most common reason for seal unit failure is that the sealed
unit is sitting in the frame in a puddle of water. So before you
refit, make sure that water, which inevitably gets under the unit,
drains away properly through the frame's drainage channels.
BTW, if the panel is over a certain (quite small) size and the
glass isn't toughened, then a glazier will refuse to repair it
if they know it's going into a door (or anywhere else where
building regs no longer allow the use of plain glass).
