Double Pane Window Repair or Replace?

The double pane window Mylar film has "bubbled" and dis colored on my 1975 Safari. Any suggestions for breaking the interior glass in order to remove the old Mylar film? The alternative seems to buy a new window for about $500 plus.

Use a spring loaded center punch to break the inner pane.

The window can be taken apart, cleaned and reassembled but it takes a lot of work.

BTW/ I have an extra 75 Service (not Owners) Manual. Send me a PM if you are interested.
