Most auto parts stores sell a glass cut-out tool that looks like a linoleum knife with a short cable and handle on it; you position the end of the knife in the sealant, and pull it with the handle. Two people working with a length of music wire also will do it, but it's a lot more work.

I used a wire that I got from NAPA, just push it through and work around the window in a sawing motion works great!

Nylon string will also work. You may be less likely to damage your glass with it than with wire.

Unless you have the suction cups, taking a window out is a two person job anyway. We always use guitar string (we have lots of guitars and plenty of extra & broken strings).
