milgard vinyl window (1993 edition)

A quick learner from portland, oregon says:
I have a broken balance spring . The window has no take out clips.
Is a special tool required? Any help is appreciated.

Is your sash a tilt in? Please also send a photo of the track near the top. Your photo came just short of the top.
A quick learner from oregon says:
No sir. Makes cleaning no fun. I've attached the picture that you requested

Hmm... I'm not sure exactly what to recommend without seeing the original balance. The hole near the top doesn't look like it's made for a take out clip, at least not any that I'm familiar with. Do you have an identical window in the house that may still have its balances? If so, could I see them out of the window?
