Every job is easier when you use the proper tools. Go to a rental or home store and get a 1500 watt/120 volt Temperature Range: to 600+˚F heat gun. If you try to manhandle it you can damage parts you intend to reuse, necessitating spending more money.

I did it with a normal hair dryer twice and it worked pretty well. I ordered the suction cups, but did not use them as I noticed I could not lift the glass.

At least I heated the glass to around 50 to 60 degrees celsius (you could touch it, but it was hard to) and used a guitar plec to lift the glass - a heat gun may be too much and you will burn the outer rubber.

While lifting the glass with a guitar plec you can insert another one between glass and cover and then go around the glass - be very careful - while constantly heating just the area you are going to lift with plec at next.
