I can relate. Mine was so old and dry that every point at which I tried prying at it simply broke off--the rubber that is, not the metal skeleton that grips it to the frame.
You needn't remove the glass. The seal is just stubborn when old. Good that the engine deck lid is off though, which helps you get a good angle on knocking the stripping off. I carefully positioned my big screwdriver against the underside pointing up and tapped with a mallet along the under edge from the engine compartment side, repeating all the way across, careful not to hit too hard and overshoot the mark. If you get one portion free you will probably be able to grip at that point and force it up and off the frame bit by bit. No matter how old and dry, it will come off with some patience.
