 Original windshield seal

My original windshield seal is like a rock. It is hard , real hard. A knife will not cut it. Is there an easy way to remove the seal portion that is on the outside without cracking the glass? Any ideas ?

No expert here but......

Maybe try some light heat (hair dryer/heat gun on low) to soften it up a bit?
or try some thin piano wire, work it through to the inside and using a helper work it along and push/pull with a sawing type motion? I've watched glass guys do this.

I finally got my seal cut with one of those knifes that you break the blade off and the next on is ready. Took some time.
