Bent bedroom window frame jams window

I have a Fleetwood Class A but this problem would apply to most any brand RV's window. When I bought my preowned RV I found one of the bedroom windows would not slide open. After a close look at the window I found that someone had tried to force the window closed with the latch in the locked position. The latch bent about 2-3 inches of the metal rim on the edge of the glass up 90 degrees to the glass. The only way I can open the window is if I push out and flex the glass enough to lift the bent edge past the latch and keep it from scraping along the other glass pane. I figure sooner or later that operation will result in a shattered window. It looks very difficult to get the window out of the frame to trim the bent metal edge away. I am thinking if I can get the glass out of the frame I might be able to trim away the bent edge with a Dremel. I tried to bend the edge back and the amount of pressure it was taking was going to shatter the glass. Any ideas on how I can fix this?
Thanks in advance...

You should be able to remove the rubber track the window slides. Look at the opposite side of the window where the window slides to, you should see the end of the rubber track. I use a small screwdriver to lift the rubber track out. Once you get it started just pull the track out. Once the track is out of the frame you should be able to lift the window and pull it toward you. That works for my Hehr windows.
