Default Wing Mirror Glass removal

Hello, I need to remove a wing mirror glass from a 2013 Alto SZ with manual mirrors. Before I break anything when levering it off are there any tips?

be careful.

adjust mirror as far towards the car as it will go, get a decent torch, pry the mirror towards the car a little bit more, you will see see the glass frame piece and the support in the main mirror frame, you need to insert a smooth thin item between them and the bit holding the glass will pop off its retaining clips and basically fall out.
I use a plastic trim removal tool designed for just this purpose but a thin flexible item will work, like a butter knife, just make sure its flexible and has a wide end.
