Like many others I don't think I have ever taken one apart. It does seem the glass is glued on as the last step judging by the pictures I found at eBay. The nut for the ball stud seems to be under the glass so I bet it needs to be removed in that oreder. I also agree that some type of heat would help soften the glue. See attached.
Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.
