From memory, there are a couple of small flat bars or metal strips with small flat head screws One on the left and one on the rightside of the windshield frame.

remove the little trim clips.

You will need to soak the screws in penetrating oil, and possibly use a hand held impact driver to get the screws out. I think I had to drill out a couple.

The upper and lower frame will slide off the glass with some persuasion from a hammer and wood block.

Thank you finn....your way is the best way. I did soak them for a week, but no budge. So, I ran a thin hacksaw through bought sides. I then made a dowel for both sides, jb weld, and held it together with wood clamps.
