Bentley says to pry the old glass out with a "Tool 80-200". Protect the 
mirror housing from damage with tape. To install the new glass: Align with 
guide pins, press on. Press on the center of the glass.

Wear protective gear (goggles, leather gloves, etc.) to reduce the risk of 
injury from the glass if it should break.

I suspect one of those sheet metal crowbars would work just fine as a 
substitute for the "Tool 80-200". Get something that's fairly wide to 
reduce the risk of breaking the glass.
