Wood Casement Window Weatherstripping

A handy person from San Diego says:
This is for older Thermal/ever guard windows with Truth hardware. Im worried about removing a sample because its becoming brittle(sun damaged)and it seems to be really attach well to the sill-frame. Im guessing that it could be pulled-out like most weatherstripping.

I'm afraid I cannot tell what you have based on these pictures. I will need you to remove a small piece and show us its profile so that we can identify its shape.
A quick learner from San Diego says:
Here are a couple profile pics. What I don't understand is that the bend in the weatherstripping is buried in the wood and appears to be(without having to take the sill apart)of a permanent,non-replaceable nature.When I pulled on the lower(horizontal) weatherstripping,it split the outer piece of the sill/wood. The side piece doesn't seem as buried,but I still could not pull it out without it coming apart. Dose any of this look familiar? Thanks Alan

Thank you! Yes, your weatherstripping is very unusual. I have a few suggestions you may be interested in, though I'm not sure if any would work. take a look at our 58-053 and 58-055 bubbleseals. I wonder if you could use one of these in your window. They are pretty commonly used in casement windows, at least. Also take a look at the self stick 58-180. This might also be a good replacement as it can stick on wherever you need it to go.
