Repair Roof Lantern

Hi, I am looking for someone to check and probably repair a roof lantern which was installed 2 years ago. There seems to be an issue with one of the panes and it looks like it has dropped, now letting water into the house. How can I fix?

"If it is upvc or aluminium it will be glazed from out side. You should remove the cappings from outside and then you should be able to reposition the seal unit. It may have sticky tape on it which will need to be replaced. Replace capping"
