The first step of the repair implies removing the old glass by inserting your fingers, carefully behind it, as in the image below. Press on the left side of the glass and pry out on the right.
After you detach the piece, you will notice two electrical connections, as in the next picture. You will be able to remove the glass once you have disconnected them.
In the last part of the repair you will have to install the replacement. Make sure you reconnect properly the electrical connectors. Put the glass on the alignment, paying much attention to the metal pin marked above with the red arrow, that has to fit into its socket. Put your hands as shown below and press from both directions until the piece is fixed.
