How to replace rusted UPVC Window Handle Screws?

Postby Grrrrrowler » Sun Jan 08, 2017 2:34 pm

Hi All,

Please help!! I have 2 UPVC windows that have broken handles so I'm trying to fix myself & have bought replacements but I can't get the old ones off. The screws (which are obviously quite old) are rusted solid & barely have any thread left to get a screwdriver to grip to.

Any help much appreciated.
