1966 Avion T27 rear window - "escape"?

Anybody have insights on the rear window (jalousie style) construction as far as a supposed "escape" function? The POs have ParBonded the heck out of mine but it appears there are two tabs located in the bottom inner frame run that do not appear in the rest of the windows. Appears the whole inner frame might be able to be pushed out?

I will start to clean it all out, but wanted to know what I might run up against.

I'll get some pics as well.............

On the 64 Avion T21 that I sold, I believe on the inside it had a handle on each side of the rear window. If you lifted up on both handles it allowed the window to be pushed out at the bottom and hinge at the top. Then with it open you could slide the entire window to one side and remove the whole unit.

Thanks - but mine has no provisions for interior handles or evidence of a hinge at the top. Just the crank for the operator on the right, which I replaced today - and it works! WooHoo - an operable bathroom window!
