I need to remove this window from its frame to fit something into the basement which will not fit in with the window there. I had them put in a massive window with a larger opening than the basement door, but sadly it doesn't hinge from the side so the window really needs out temporarily.

Do I really have to unscrew all these screws as it certainly looks like, both top and bottom, or is there some clever quick release or similar? It's a new window for what it's worth!

Thanks!

Yes , that is the modern , standardized operator & hardware .

You should use :

1. Spray silicone for the plastic parts

2. Oil (3in1 , motor oil , whatever) for the metal parts .

3. A fairly large straight edge screwdriver .

On the bottom of the sash , there should be a plastic piece that that slides in a rail . Spray the piece with silicone & gently pry the arm off (downwards)

There are 2 control arms (top& bottom) & a pivot arm (on the bottom corner of the sash) that have snap connections . Oil them & pry the arm off the post......HOWEVER , This requires a little finesse . You should wiggle the sash while prying each arm or you can pull the post off !:vs_whistle: .

Now you slide it out of the hinge guide


It may be a good idea to have someone hold the sash while you un hook it...…...

  1. Have a helper around to support the sash - it looks like it is decent sized
  2. Pictured by the green arrow - use a flat blade screw driver to "unclip" the retainer clip that holds the hardware unto the underside of the sash. It should pull right off once unclipped.
  3. Use a flat blade screw driver to pop up the arms - pictured in the green circles and be sure to have a hold on the sash
  4. Slide the sash off the tracks and set to the side
