Start by looking at our 38-090, this might be what you need. You may want to remove your lock from the window to confirm that all details match.

Ah, I've seen this a few times before. I'm afraid there's no easy way to deal with this; it's an unfortunate flaw in the window design. The only thing I can recommend is seeing if there's a way to remove that guide, or see if you can work around it with an offset screw driver. I'm sorry we can't offer a better solution!
