How can I remove a glass table top stuck to the table?
I have an old gorgeous wrought-iron patio table with a glass top that I've neglected over the years. We're finally getting around to doing some landscaping so we've decided to do a side patio area off our wrap-around front porch while we're at it. The patio table is in need of a paint job, but I need to clean it up a bit first. I tried to take the glass top off since I can see there's dirt under where it rests on a small groove of the table. The glass top is stuck in the groove, and I can't remove it no matter how I've tried. I'm afraid I'm going to crack or break it if I keep tugging at it. I've tried spraying soap and water where it's stuck to no avail. I know the top can be removed because we used to remove it to clean it (before I started neglecting it...shame on me). Does anyone know what I can do to remove it without causing damage to the glass top? The table and the top are not a true square shape (sort of arches at the top of each side) so I think it would be hard to find another one if I break the top. I really want to restore this table and top to close to it's original condition.

Try putting wd40 in area, let it sit a few days, keep adding to it. Then try. I had to break mine, found out about wd40 after the fact, so I hope it works for you.
If you do break it, go ahead and refurbish the table and take it to a glass shop, they can cut any shape.
probably rusted the rust actually swells the wrought iron causing the glass to get stuck..... try straight vinegar to break down rust let it soak on it then add some WD40--alot, to help slide it out after rust has begun to dissolve some. if that doesn't work get rust converter from hardware store. when you get it out use a stiff wire brush and either vinegar or rust converter to clean out track the glass slides in and make sure it's sealed or oiled to prevent rerusting here are some videos on this https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=diy+how+to+seal+wrought+iron+to+keep+from+rusting
Try WD-40 let it soak in then spray again and then try. If all ideas fail - paint the underside of the glass.
