It would depend on what kind of balance you have. Do you know the brand of the window? If not, what type of balance is it? We offer many videos on how to replace different kinds of window balances, which you can see on the right side of this page. Once we can narrow down what type you have, we can work on finding a solution.

In that case, can you give me the height and width of the visible glass? We may be able to calculate what you have with that information, though keep in mind it is not the ideal method. We can use it to reason out a suggestion, but the only way to be 100% sure is to reference each stamp printed on the balance box itself.
