     At the beginning of the repair you have to remove the old and most probably damaged glass, by inserting a flat screwdriver, or your fingers behind it. We advise you to wear protective gloves and act carefully on the glass as it can break quite easily. If the glass of the mirror is still intact and you need to take it out that way for some particular reason, we recommend you to pry slowly, with patience, on the right side of the mirror, as shown in the image below. You will have more space and better grip that way.
