Oh boy are you in for some fun !
If the rubber seals are old be very careful and use lots of lube. The glass goes into the rubber seal then that assembly goes into the frame. You will need clamps to hold your start point in and some type of safe prying/pushing type tools usually made of a really tough nylon type plastic. NEVER PRY AGAINST THE GLASS... a good helper will make it a touch easier.

Using a cord will make the job a little easier. Please see the following video and read the comments https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvcJ_lU_VpQ

That doesnt work on a newer Sekura cab because the glass is set DEEPin the rubber seal and the flange the rubber seal fits onto is an inch or more thick.
It wprks awsome on old Chevy teuck windows though LOL dont ask me how I know... DOH!

Don't use a Fairy liquid type detergent. It contains salt and is extremely corrosive as I found to my cost when I used it on my 990. My carefully derusted and repaired cab has corroded all around the seals. Something like the tyre fitters soap may be better. I thought the DB Q cabs rusted badly but am now playing with a 1490 which is worse and Sekura should be ashamed of themselves.

Red rubber grease (often used on brake assemblies) is as slippery as you could wish for, and won't hurt the rubber.
Tyre lube would also be a safe option as mentioned above.
