Tilt window pivot pin

A home owner from Toms River says:
I have a vinyl tilt out window that has pivot pins that are rusted completely off. I cannot remove them to identify.
Can you help with replacement. I am located in Toms River and am willing to drive there with the window and pick up the parts.

I'm not sure what you may have. I think your best bet at this point would be to take a few pictures of the pivot bar (still installed in the window, if it cannot be removed) and upload them here for us to see. I would also like to see the pivot shoe that the bar goes into.

I'm afraid you cannot pick up parts at our facility, but I would be happy to identify what you have here. If we have a match, you can purchase it directly from our site.
A quick learner from Toms River nj says:
The pivot is part #S600-29 red
The shoe is part #15-046

The problem is the pivot pin was apparently glued in place and rusted so badly that it crumbles, the protuding pin and mounting screw are completely gone, and I do not know how to remove the remains without destroying the vinyl case.

Based on the parts you've already identified, I'm lead to believe you may have 26-040 tilt bar. Check it out and see what you think.

To remove the rusted tilt bar, you will have to constantly spray it with WD-40 for a day or two. Then, carefully try to tap it out or even pull it out with a pair of pliers. If that doesn't work, use a heat gun or hair dryer and carefully heat the area and pulling it out then. Just be sure not to over heat it so much that it distorts the frame.
