Removing Trillium Escape Window

Hi, All

I broke the glass in my escape window and would like to remove it to give to the glassman for repair.
I don't see an obvious way to do so- does anybody know if it's possible to take out just the swinging part (below, left) without removing the whole unit, frame and all?
Any how-to tips would be greatly appreciated!

Francesca, leaver of unsecured projectiles inside the trailer...

Later that same day...

Guess what?
If you take out the side screws at the top of the window, it slides right out!

Nothing like doing the bleedin'obvious...

SO- Never mind!

Thanks, Maggie!

From one Trillium owner to another...
If you collect rocks, do NOT leave one loose on the shelf over the dinette.
It WILL try to use the escape window, and without bothering to open it, either

Sorry but you figured it out before I got to read your post..It never hurts to work things out until you break something that was last made in 1978... thats when you say why the heck didn't I ask first ...
