How do we remove the windows?
 
We were told they just pop out real easy, but we haven't been able to figure out how to "easily pop them out"
Any info would help out greatly.

tks

I see two screws one on each side, thats all I can find, they seem to just keep the lower window in, Ill try tommoro and see if I can get the frame out, looks like there really glued in good!!

Heat gun! That's what I used to soften the adhesive. Heat them up good around the edges and they pull out a lot easier.

I got figured out, they poped out brute force and ignorance!! we dont need no stinken heat gun!!!

after looking real hard at them I figured it was just the caulking holding them in , with a bit movement they came right out>

thats a bunch for all the help with this.
Ill have more questions soon

We made sure every screw was unscrewed and even took out a few screws from the top metal above the windows so we could slide them out. Then we used a crowbar and bent them out, this is what it looked like.
