I can't say that's a surprise given what I found yesterday. I would think they'd have some instructions on how to do it though. I'm not afraid of trying to do things myself, but this was some complicated BS honestly.

I had the glass off, gloss black surround off, about 6 screws out and still couldn't even remotely get it off without feeling like I was going to break something so I aborted and put it back together. If I had to guess, I'd say the whole mirror may need to come off if you don't want to break something.
