Razor blade as much of the silicone away from the corners and seams as you possibly can... If possible, push a blade INTO the seams and pull it along them... the idea is to separate as much of the silicone seal as possible.
Pry the bracing off the bottom and top (It's just glued on via the silicone.)
Same with the glass panels then... you just pull them apart... the more silicone that's left, the harder they are to pull apart... but that's all there really is too it.
