A home owner from Westbrook, Ct. says:
Do you know how to remove a broken pivot bar that broke off while still in the window? Any suggestions on how to remove the piece left in the window Thanks
A home owner from westbrook, ct. says:
It broke off at the screw hole closest to the head of the pivot bar and the rest of the bar is stuck inside of the window.

Without actually seeing the window it's hard to figure out the problem, however what I would try is to remove the screws and try to shake out the broken pivot bar or possibly try to grab it with a needle nose or long nose pliers.
