How do you remove a window pane from a vinyl double hung window?

I need to remove a window pane from a vinyl double hung window.

If you can pull the window out of the frame do so. Look around the edges of the window for some screws that will allow you to take the frame apart. Carefully unscrew the screws and that should be it. Some window manufacturers may replace the entire window. You may want to check the manufacturer by checking their website.

I feel for you on this one. There should be a latch down by the bottom of each side that will let you unscrew the inner window. This will give you access to the outer window and its attachments. If it is an older house, be prepared for some elbow grease! Good luck!

First I would remove the rubber casket from around the window. These windows are not caulked like wood frame windows. Be sure and buy a new rubber casket to replace the old one. Have it on hand when you remove the pane.

The way I would do is strange, but it works. I use a hammer and hit it until it comes off.
