Thank you. To remove these latches, first Tilt the window in and remove the sash. Lay the sash down flat and grab a flat-head screw driver and hammer. Place the tip of the screw driver to the back of tilt latch and gently tap it with a hammer, knocking the latch out of the sash. You will break the lower tab that lock the tilt latch in, but since they're already broken that won't matter.

Once the old ones are out, take a look at our 26-243 and 26-244 top tilt latches and carefully compare those dimensions to your own hardware to see if they match. If not, let me know exactly how they differ.
