    My rear view mirror broke and now i dont know how to get the stud off that is glued to the front window. ( i would reuse it but my new mirror won't fit it) I dont want to get a screw driver and start prying it and then crackt the glass. Should i use a heat gun? any tips would be greatly appreciated! thanks

    Heat it up with a lighter for approx a minute, it will fall off.
