Aluminum window frame question

Hi again. I have mildew stains on the caulk on all four ports/windows. No luck with cleaners, bleach, etc. So today I removed the interior aluminum frame from one cabin window. This was surprisingly difficult: I warped the aluminum shape considerably, and had to drill out a couple of pop rivets. All I want to do is remove the old caulk, so this seems pretty extreme. Anyone have insight as to how I could solve this problem in a less destructive way? Would I be better off detaching the frame from the exterior? Thanks.

Did you review the Black Arts post about replacing the windows?  My recollection is that I only removed the interior aluminum frame, and that no rivets were involved.

Re: Aluminum window frame question

I did review the black arts post, but what I understood from it is that the plexiglass is removed from the exterior while the aluminum frame stays in place. Is that right?

Re: Aluminum window frame question

It has been a few years since we replaced the windows, but looking at some photos, the interior aluminum frames are held in place with nuts.  When the nuts are removed, the interior aluminum frame can also be removed. Then the plexiglass is removed from the inside.

Good luck!
