Have any of you done this?
After ordering and receiving the glass package I thought it would be a cinch.
I was wrong....did they glue the glass in?
It just wont budge and I don't want to break anything. I don't see evidence of glue but....
Any help would be appreciated

Heat gun, warm up the black plastic to help it pop on and off.

Austin, I did read that before posting this, but thanks...Littlegreek, thanks that little tidbit helped.
I got the drivers side changed but couldn't get the passenger mirror apart...ended up
breaking the glass, removing all the pieces and then the plastic framework and still it really didn't
want to come apart stuck almost like it melted together....someone must have used a little glue.

Just a little follow-up to this, the passenger side was glued...it looks like at some point 3 of the plastic clips were broken. Took a bit of time with an Olfa knife before the new mirror would seat properly and my repair used 2 small ty-wraps to seat the bottom firmly.
