Question Anderson window slider broken

heard a pop and felt some resistance when opening or closing the window. this piece is now hanging down and keeps the window from moving up. If I push up on the bottom of it while opening the window the window will open and stay in place. How would I repair this. I do see these very tiny little clips w/ a thin cord in the channels on both sides. other than that nothing. No obvious way to take the window out. Windows were installed in late 90's.

Relax, it's not broken...

That channel balance is probably catching on the takeout clip. Shut the window and look for a clip on the side jamb above that sash. Be sure it is pushed in all the way, because otherwise the channel balance catches on it as you raise the window. Look at the opposite sides or at other windows for how it is supposed to look.

If you need to, close the window and take a picture, and post it.
