broke glass

i broke the glass in the emergency exit window. how do i get the frame out of the surround to replace it? it seems like it should slide out sideways when you open it up all the way but it doesn't.

Don't know if our exits would be the same, but I found out the hard way that the glass & frame dropped out when raised straight up.
Had it open to put a washing machine in, luckily a friend was on the ground and grabbed it with an inch to spare.

this is a small one up in the bunk. in fact it looks useless as an exit for a fat old man. i'm going to get a taller ladder and inspect it closely. there has to be a way to get it out without removing the whole frame

got it done . there were 4 small screws way up in the corners that were holding the window. once removed it slid out. there was only double strength glass in it so i replaced it with plexiglass which will be safer anyway.
