Sorry for the delay. Got back to the opener today. Thanks to all for the suggestions. Drilled a 3/8 hole from the back side until it hit the back side of the housing for the opener. Inserted a 1/4 inch drive 9/16 socket as a pusher. Bridged the opener with wood to push with a clamp and tightened the clamp. With a little more force than I really wanted to put on the glass, the opener broke free of the silicone. The opener is out, it appears it could be held in place with two small machine screws from the back side. Will decide about that later. Thanks again for everybody’s ideas.

Good job Jim. Thanks for taking us along on your endeavor and I learned something I hope I don't need to use. But if I do I will know what to do thanks to you.
