Question Replacement Heated Mirror Glass only Driver'* side?

Anyone know where I can get at a reasonable price the driver'* side mirror glass for my 97 PA??
It would appear all cloudy now as water is getting in between or under the main glass and it definitely needs to be replaced. I got a quote from a glass shop locally at $110 for it. I suppose the glass just pops out? Has any member done this job with heated glass or have FSM description or replacement? THX.

i did the $12 replacment on my yukon you just stick it on the old, but it doesnt look as nice as the oe one. good enough for my third vehicle but when i had it to do over(on my bonnie) the new whole mirror was cheap enough, and they have plastic studs in there that get brittle anyway. it was definitely better just to replace the whole thing. i got some duplicolor paint matched paint and clear and you cant tell the difference now.

The glass just pops out. Tilt the mirror all the way into the car, grasp the outer edge and pull. You pull almost to the point where you think you will break it. The only difference between heated and non-heated for installation is the heated has 2 wires going to spade connectors on the mirror glass. Just pull them off and connect them to the new mirror (after you clean the connectors up). When you put the new glass on, line up the features (2 jack screws, ball/socket in the middle, etc) and smack it with the palm of your hand at the center of the glass to seat the ball to the socket. You have to get a bit ignorant with it, almost to the point where you think you might break it.
