changing glass like some other issues is best left to the glass shop.

I have change them and not broken them.

I use plastic kitchen tools to move the rubber seal to go around the glass.

Never use anything harder than plastic and never pry against the glass.

Reuse the plastic lockstrip if you can, since changing the lock strip is the worse job.

Good luck,
