Glass removal with Aluminum Trim in rubber seal?

I am in the process of fixing a damaged door and my body man offered to paint the whole car. I am aware that common practice is to cut the seal/remove trim prior to extracting the front and rear windows. I just replaced both pieces of glass with in the last year using OE Porsche seals. i would like to avoid the $$ of another set of OE seals and was hoping to save time on the re-install. Can it be done? Techniques? I'm sure there is increased risk of breaking a window. Did a search and couldn't find any opinions.

You can remove the windshield easily without cutting the seal as long as it was installed dry. Start peeling back the seal from a corner inside the car while simultaneously pushing outward on the windshield. Have someone there to catch the windshield, you'll be surprised how fast it goes!

Rear window is a different story; I have a targa so YMMV. Assuming you have a pre-964 car.

Thanks Jason

Yes 80SC and it was installed dry. Why is the back different? Small dimensions less angles.

Just push it out. Both feet work well. At least with the front, that's all I've ever done. (No sealant in my case.)

Alternately, you can slam into a wall at 100 mph. But I don't recommend it.

Seriously that was crazy. Having just removed my windshield I wish it would have been this easy. Mine was sealed in and several decades old though.
