Replacing glass in older aluminum storm window


Our home is approx. 30 years old. It has the older aluminum windows and all of them have aluminum storm windows over them. I've recently replaced some panes in the windows without much problem. However, I've got a slider window with a slider storm window covering it. The storm window glass has a bb hole in it so I want to replace it. I can't figure out how to get the storm window out of the frame. The glass is on one side and there is a screen on the other side which seems impossible to remove without totally demolishing it. Any ideas? What other info. would you need to help me out. Thanks, Greg

All these assemblies can be disassembled. Post a picture or two of the main sashes, open and closed.

is there a clip and a screw holing the sash in? And did you try lifting the sash up and out? BOB.
