Casement window lock stuck

A quick learner from Dearborn, MI says:
I have a casement window that the latch lock is broken and is locked shut. Do you know how to get that open to replace the latch? I need LH truth lock assembly 38-099 white. I can't get the window open.

I always hate when this happens. Fixing this problem varies, as it depends on how exactly the lock is broken. If I were you, I would try to push the lever handle back into the base of the lock, while at the same time trying to unlock the window. You could also try using a set of pliers to grab the broken part, or maybe even try sticking a screwdriver in the hole and unlocking it that way. These are just a few suggestions that have worked for me in the past. Let me know if it helps!
