Default Help with glass on flip up tow mirrors

I have 3rd gen flip up tow mirrors on my 96 2500. Long story short, I broke the glass on the driver side and I think I may have broken the backing plate because it is now loose.

My question is, how do I get the backing plate off; do I just pull it off, or is there a trick?

Where is the best place to get a new backing plate and new glass?

Thanks!

Just incase any one searches for this topic in the future, I will post up what I did.

I learned that the black backing plate just snaps on and off, so by slightly pulling you can get it to come off. Then, I couldn't find a good glass replacement online, so I went to my local auto glass store and they were able to order new glass. Glass and installation ran $40.
