I'm afraid you are stuck with it if you try and remove it you will break the glass.

you can try mounting the mirror and roll up the windows and face it into the sun

eventually it should fall off or you can try like a paint scraper and scrape it off but again

you make breake the glass

Yo rook! Check dis out man I always just heat the acual mirrior mount with a torch and tap it at the same time with a hard plastic hammer. I really have done this a bunch of times I do glass replacement as well and sometimes the mirrior mounts are wrong, Do all of this from the inside of course and remember dont get the glass hot just the metal piece. Good luck there friend

When I had my windshield replaced on my TBird that is exactly how he did it.
