Forum Title: How to dismantle older window?
Do I need to remove the wood trim inside this room in order to repair the sach on this window? When sliding the window up to open it does not hold. I have to use a stick to hold it up. Now the outside window has slid down too. I've watched YouTube videos about how with newer windows you can just unscrew some screws and then the window just pivots out, but this one doesn't work that way. There are screws in the middle on either side but they do nothing. I suspect that the pieces holding the window in place slide out coming inside to the room. Top left

The outside of the door would need a spar poly/varnish. Raw wood generally needs 3 coats, sanding lightly between coats. Spar poly can be had in satin, semi-gloss or gloss.

Obviously I don't want to have to take the trim off, but the side pieces can't come out because the windows are blocking them. They can't come out towards the room either because the trim is blocking them. It's catch 22.

If I had to guess, I would say that the sashes probably tip in to clean, and that once they are tipped down you can pivot one of the pivoting corners out. Can you tell if there is any sort of latch on the top corners of the window sash? Or if pushing in slightly on the jamb sides (just above the top of the window sash) allows you to pull the top corners of the sash inward a little ?
