Removing the belly glass on these is often a nightmare.
The frame is held on by screws through the back of the front door; you can CAREFULLY work out which ones if you compare the position of the outer frame with the door back.
BUT... the frame generally still doesn't come free. It sticks on some sort of ageing sealant, and refuses to move without being eased carefully round and round, taking care not to break the glass.
I have one to do, which I gave up on over a year ago. I'll let you know when I get it free.

Could we see a better photo of the lower half of the inside of the door. Brigham may well be correct, but this is quite a late model with the two piece front door castings. It might be that the bolts holding the belly glass housing are attached sideways, not front facing. Can't quite see from the photo. Bally never got this right. They seemed to think the tubes would last forever. Even the very early models needed screwdrivers and careful extraction. Removing the glass itself is even harder. Because it's never been opened, it will be dirty in there. A clean of the glass will work wonders but take care - the long term heat in that confined box will have had its effect on the artwork.

I have nearly rebuilt mine back up and on the bottom casting there are 2 or 3 small screws either side which you have to take out, 1 screw either side of the coin mech which hold it onto the front and you may have to take the coin mech off depending on the wire length. Once free the glass front surround (see pic) should slide up leaving the bottom part of the surround in place, this may need a little help if never been off.
Hope this helps.
