Many thanks to the OP and Kronos.

Spent almost 4 hours on it this evening cos I didnt read Krono's post and wasted most of the time trying to pry the clips with all sorts of makeshift plastic trim tools I made from plastic spatulas and nylon aquarium cleaning blades.

Also it was too tricky to just loosen the window guide-rails and push it in, the extra space created simply was not enough to get a hand in to disconnect the wires and cables connecting the actuator.

SO, VERY IMPORTANT:
"If you lower the window to 4" showing, the hole in the glass lines up with the oval hole in the black metal guide, allowing you to push any old screwdriver through both and push the white plastic clip out of the hole while you push up slightly on the lower edge of the window to release it. Slide it up and tape it at the top when it's free from both clips."

Heed this and job could have been done within 60 to 90 mins.
