     First of all, you should pry out the old glass using your fingers or a flat blade screwdriver. If the glass is in one piece and you need to take it out that way, pry it out very slowly and with patience, because applying too much force will damage or break the glass easily. After you detach it, you should notice two electrical wires (as in the next picture). If they are attached to the glass, disconnect them.
