Removing and replacing the torque bar bearing.

A home owner from Jupiter FL says:
I need to replace the torque bar bearing (both sides) on three awning windows. Your 36-082 is the bearing I need. How do you remove the torque bar and bearing to allow replacement of the bearing. The picture attached shows the one screw holding the arm of the bearing to the window case. Is there another retaining feature?

When it comes to replacing this kind of torque bar bearing, I believe you will need to disconnect the operator and the window linkage on the sides that attach to the torque bar arms. You will likely need to remove the torque bar arm completely from the window to replace the bearing. I don't think you can sneak them in at the sides, but I suppose it's worth a shot.
