Hi all

One of my windows has developed a fault where the handle won't fully close in line with the frame.

In the first picture if i start at 90 degrees, that's as far as the handle will go without feeling resistance that feels like il break something.

It does this whether the window is open or closed so it's not an alignment problem but the gearbox.

What do I need to buy and how do I do it please.
