OK so with your nylon pry tool, you are going to slide (tap the tool to get that sucker to move). to separate the two halves of the frame. Do it prior to removal as it helps to break the sealing a tad bit.
then from the inside, you are going to have to review the FSM on the C pillar removals (just out of the way not off the seat belts) as to not break the NLA items or clips.
Remove the Philips head screw from the defroster and bend away the unit from the glass. using a carpet knife with a fresh razor blade, you will run the entire window between glass and seal, cutting the big head off, all the way around. then using two dumbbell style suction devices placed at opposing angles out side (you will be close to the center here about shoulder width) you will begin pushing in and out slowly to break the rubber sealing. then lift toward the top and pull back up and out. (it is quite intuitive as you are doing it as the bottom is wider and deeper so you must lift toward roofline to free bottom chassis lift).
You need to have saw horses covered in moving blankets or the like to set the glass on. I did all of this as a solo so just plan. the glass is always stored curve UP TO CATCH AND HOLD WATER. I also put blankets on the roof of my car, and transferred the glass to the roof and it was out of the way of family in the garage. Then I went to work on the rust, get all of that old whit MB cracked sealing compound off. I used a dremmel to polish and burrs off the metal channel the rubber sits in. You also need a 3/8' length of rope for the new seal to help install the glass when the time comes. Measure the length of the window or the frame and add two feet. the glass is surrounded by rubber and a frame, and it floats in the hole in the body.
