I'm guessing that these pieces somehow hold the hinge in place and that I need to drill out the rivets, slide these pieces away from the hinge (or remove them). Then I can tilt the window and hinge out of its track. Do I have that right?
Remove the arms from the window so you can tilt it up about 165 degrees, towards vertical, and the hinge will separate. Do not drill. Be ready to support the weight of the window as it separates.
Keep track of which window goes in which frame. They are not always identical.
