Replacing glass on a bay window

Howdy howdy,
Earlier this year I had a crack develop on one of my bay windows, so I need to replace the glass.

When it comes to taking the glass out, I've gotten about halfway there.

I was able to remove the frame (sash?) with no issue, but I can't figure out how to pop this thing open to remove the glass.

I figure there's someone out there who will take one look at this thing and know exactly what's going on, so I've posted some pictures below

How do I crack this eggshell? Or is it designed to be sealed? Thanks!

Clean the joint at the stops (thinner strips of wood next to the glass on interior side), then insert a small prybar there starting at the middle working it away from the frame. Try Google if I'm not clear
Don't use a sander, paint is probably lead based. To get you started:

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
