    Advice please. I have a broken window stay which a previous owner has bodged back together with an adhesive. On our recent trip to Scotland we did on a few occasions have reason to open the windows, the bodged repair soon came to light and the stay failed to work.
    Now it seems there is a little hole in the stay bracket, I assume it holds a mini tag, and if depressed allows the fitting to be slid off......right tried all that to no avail.
    So my queries are, how hard should it be to hold the tag down and how hard do you need to persuade the fitting to come free (by persuade I mean hit with hammer). After my first failure I thought I could slide the whole window from its hinge and take it into my workshop and properly deal with the fitting on the bench....no that didn't work either, the window extrusion hinge should allow the panel to slide free, but clearly there is something stopping it moving,any ideas?

    A photograph might help bump start a few Funster neurons.
