Skylight Replacement - Caulk Question

Good morning everyone, Iíve got a skylight that has a crack and needs to be replaced. The PO used silicone up top on top of self leveling caulk. Besides just digging it out with a plastic scraper an easy suggestions? I was thinking maybe a heat gun on a low setting to soften it up? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Heat gun, scraper, and a cleaner such as WD40 for the final cleanup.

Once you've got all the old stuff cleaned up, I would use Butyl Tape between the roof and the new skylight lip and Dicor over the screws.

I had to reseal my skylight due to leaking. Cleaned everything up, caulked groove in skylight, screwed corner brackets down and covered with self leveling dicor. 5 months later during New Orleans downpour shower full of water.

Went back to square 1, contacted Winny for proper procedure. Used caulks recommended by them. ADDITIONALLY, used adhesive primer, per their instructions, bought from them (about 8 oz, $45). No issues after 4 years.
