Yes, there is a caulk-softening/releasing type of stuff that works well
I can't remember the name of it, sorry
It's sort of like an "over-caulk" type deal
You squeeze it out over the existing caulk, you wait a little, then removal should be much easier
It may be helpful in this type of situation

I'm sure you'll need to go to a local Paint Store where contractors shop to find it
Certainly it would be worth a few phone calls to some near you to see if any carry it

"Contractor's Solvent" also may work

The stuff works great on old mastic and other cured stuff like that
But I've not tried it on caulk myself (though they say it works)
It's more of a liquid, so not quite an "over-caulk"
If the other stuff is not available, it might be worth a try

Regardless of the product used, there will be some decent glass clean-up after
I'd still go for a "caulk remover helper" and the ensuing clean-up, rather than "glass replacement"...unless the removers prove ineffective
