Sadly I can't help, it's not something I have tackled before - is there a local window fitter/ windscreen repairs/ autoglass sort of thing nearby, I'm sure they would have the tools, knowledge and experience....

Failing that experiment with one in a scrapyard, if you (or they) can get it out in one piece it's worth buying.....

That's why I'm asking... Found a scrap yard that has the whole car but I'm interested in how to remove it without breaking it... :(

Bonded in, the same as the windscreen

Not sure how you'll get on with the one in the scrap yard as the seal comes with the glass
& is secured in place with the window mastic.

If you remove the trims from the inside you might be able to cut it out but you'll probably damage the seal.

As ginger say's a autoglass place or bodyshop or main dealer could advise better.
