Safety Glass

Paul, if it is safety glass it's face is strong, like if it takes a hit it may shatter but will not fall apart.

If it's not in a rubber it may just be dry putty, use lots of dish soap to soften.

If it's a rubber run a razor knife blade around inside edge, do not try prying on edge it will crack.

You may smack it with the palm of your hand at top edge, like a shock, be sure to hold hand on outside face.

Take your time think positive.

If not call a glazier they have pullers they're fast and cheap.

If not put up a picture I have removed lots of glass it's not brain science, take it out then be gentile with this class, the edge must be protected.

Good luck
