Unhappy Removing Side Mirror Glass

Can anyone confirm how to remove the "Side mirror glass"? My wife broke the part #3 in the pic below and I need to remove the mirror glass to be able to remove the old broken part. Before I break any plastic clips (as I assume the mirror glass is held by), can anyone confirm how to remove it?

Many thanks,
Armand

I know the black plastic rim (part #3 in the pic) is a separate piece. That's exactly how my wife broke it also - backing up from the garage. The question as stated above is "How to remove the side mirror glass?". I.e. - does it just pop off? Is it glued? Is there a certain corner that you should start off with to pop it off? Etc...

Send me a P.M. with your email address and I will forward you the .pdf instruction files. I wasn't able to attach them here for some reason...
