the method that has never broken one yet for me is
a heat gun and a cheap wire kit from harbor or ebay.
if you happen to hit a stubborn spot,
a litte heat will make the seal cut like butter.
they also sell a window cutter that works well.

Pretty good chance you will break your WS.. Its just the characteristics of used glass..

NO glass shop ( the pro's that do this everyday) will guarantee a WS removal.....

Tempered back glass should be pretty easy...

This has always worked for me..haven't broken one yet removing it with this method. But I have broken one putting it back in, pressing it with the palm of my hand and the glass cracked.
