No big deal removing the opera windows. Just remove the retaining clips on the inside (behind the sail panels) and use a flat blade to break the butyl seal around the perimeter.

The fastest way I've learned to remove these is with a windshield removal tool like the one in the link below. Just cut the wire about double the size of the opera window and start it in the top hard corner and "saw" your way down. Takes about 30 seconds and its out.
