Don't have one to look at, but usually you just cut the gasket. You'd
never want to use an old gasket anyway.
BTW, it is 'breaking', not 'braking' unless you want to stop the
glass, which may break it.
My best advice for pulling windshields without breaking them - DON'T.
That truck will have the old style window gasket. Usually you can use a
sharp THIN blade to cut the gasket. There are a few special tools that
make the job easier.
The first is basically a utility knife blade in a LONG handle.
The next is a tool that you can actually buy at HF, cheap. It's an
aluminum handle with aright angle blade. It also has a T handle that you
pull to move the blade.
For the cheapest way that works well, use a wire. Guitar strings work
well. Use the smaller sizes.
