How to remove a glued bathroom mirror?

A Re-Post

My wife would like to put up wallpaper in our RV bathroom. I checked the mirror and it looks like it maybe glued onto the wall.

One suggestion was braided fishing line.

Does anyone have other suggestions on how to take off the mirror without it breaking?

Thanks!

On my 2015 ACE the bathroom mirror was just brad nail in four spots.
Take a look around the edges to see if there are little holes.
I removed mine and built a Medicine cabinet with it.

I use monofilament line to debadge cars and trucks. It is easy and does not damage the finish. I use heat to disassemble golf clubs. The heat re-activates the epoxy holding the heads to the shafts. Heat will re-activate glues and adhesives but I don't know what it does to mirrors. Maybe a combination of the two will work on your mirror.

I would go with look at the edges first. If that's a no-go, then this might work too: a heat gun, like a paint stripper. I don't know what frames the mirror. If it's wood, you may burn it in the process, and you said you wanted to save it.

Maybe a combination: Use the gun to soften the glue without burning the border and then fishing line to make the cut into the softened glue.
