Aluminum Storm Door Window Repair

Can't find any info at this site or on the web so I thought I'd see if anybody out there can help me!
How do I get the frame on a aluminium storm door window apart? There are some small plastic clips at each corner but it looks like it may take a special tool to remove these. Anybody know? I'd hate to go in there and just start prying and such, if I do that, I'll probably end up with a more expensive repair than I had planned. Any help would sure be appreciated!

The inserts are called "corner keys". Check out window screen hardware on
I know from personal experience that old ones deteriate with age and snap readily. They do just slide in and out. I used a small piece of hardwood that I had carved to fit and then gently tapped each side of the "corner key" until one popped loose. You might check your local hardware stores for replacement prior to taking them out. My old source was an ACE hardware store that repaired storm windows.
