New window installation quiz

Hey gang, We are about to receive our window replacement for the 70' airstream...we have the original owners manual...which I will re check before the window gets here....I think the riser (metal) arms have to be un-done to take out the broken window...where do they release from...ours (those two metal arms) seem to have a film of rust on them and will be spraying with WD40 to soak so that whichever end comes loose, it will be easier..so thats the question, is ---what has to be undone before the window is lifted out?

There are 2 attachment points for the window "articulators" ( I think they are called).
There is a pin or a c ring where the rod attaches to the window. There is a small set screw under the handle on the inside at the free end of the rod. While you are at it you might want to change the fuzzies that keep the bugs out. One the window is free just raise the window on its J hinge until it slips off.

right now, and until the window arrives from inland, we have used adhesive contact paper to cover the window for now...we can see the articulaters (?) from the inside...and they just look like they 'cup' onto the small pin from the window but we will look closer here in a little while.....thanks for the advice...thats one step closer to a smooth repair operation. Thanks again.

I went and looked closer at the other windows, and at the top where the articulators join the frame of the window, you see it sticking thru a small metal support plate and on the other side it sticks out a little, with a little metal ring...how are those removed....with needle nose pliers, ...and will they go back on afterwords?
