Been a while since I had one apart, but as I recall, there's a roll pin you drive out.

Yea looks like the post is broke off. do you have a replacement part? Probly easier to replace whole window. there are two rivets in the underside of frame. could drill them out and replace with short flathead ones. the whole thing is glued.




I have an extra frame if you need it. would Probly be easier. pm me.

Jim.
