I took inner glazing bar off (go careful) next to latch, then drilled small hole (about 4mm) through the newly exposed frame parallel with the glass through to the dropped bar. then jimmy it up with a screwdriver.

Fix or remove the offending part then refit the glazing bar and no one will ever know.

It worked for me.
