    I've in fact just finished replacing the glass on my A4. I struggled removing the glass by pulling it out. Instead I removed the black plastic bottom part of the mirror (its only held in with two screws), you the have access to the back of the glass and it easy to just push it out then.

    Good luck getting those two little screws out in the majority of cars!
