How to remove non-tilt Alenco window?

A handy person from Atlanta, GA says:
Also have Alenco windows but the bottom sash does not have a tilt window latch. How can I take out the window so we can have the glass replaced? I could not find the mechanism to release the bottom sash or am I missing something?

Thanks for posting! Please take a look at our video on how to remove non-tilt balances. This should tell you everything you need to know.

This video was very helpful in removing and reinstalling my ALENCO window, the inside or botton section. The procedure is not intuitive, and i would have spent quite an amount of time experimenting with removal. I was able to take this bottom section to a local glass store where they measured for a complete new glass insert, the two glass sections with the internal dividers. They will call me in about three weeks and i will take this whole section back in and they will install the glass insert.
