    A hot wire or a torch would work. Not many, if any, chemicals will eat 5200 away.

    Just a suggestion for next time either use 3M 101 or 3M 4200. Both keep water out and are easier to clean up. Rule of thumb with 5200 is that if its not permanant, dont use 5200.

    There is a product called Debond that will soften it up. It comes in a small aerosol can and it is pretty cheap. You can get it from Fiberglass Coatings. Heating it up will also help if you want to try that before buying anything.
