I posted earlier that I was facing this same problem and found a sight that said you needed to heat the mirror before you start digging. Got a blow driver and a flat head screwdriver and started prying and the pieces started coming out. Took a bit of effort, but the blow dryer was the key.
One thing, my mirror has the turn signal dots and I believe is also heated. When you start prying out the glass, the glass sits on a black rubber-like backing and that is glued to a thin mettalic looking sheet which has metallic leaders running through it. This is then glued to the backing plate. My guess is these metallic "runners" are the heating elements. You don't want to scrape that up. You want the mirror with the black backing and don't scrape the thin metallic sheet. The blow dryer is again key in getting that to detach.
My vehicle is a late model Yukon and everyone probably won't have this problem.

Ford does not like to supply hardware with replacement components. You will need to carefully transfer the mounting parts from the old mirror to the new one. Line all parts up into the fixture and press in firmly. When you fell a solid snap, you'll know it has seated.

You need to put on a pair of gloves, and safety glasses. (Safety First !)
Prise off the broken mirror from the plastic base that it is stuck too.
Give the plastic a clean with nail polish remover or similar.
Peel off the backing on new mirror glass, and carefully stick it on.
Good Luck !

TO FIT A NEW MIRROR FIRST CONNECT THE WIRING PLUGS THEN ENSURE THE FRICTION PIN ON THE BACK OF MIRROR ENGAGES IN THE SLOT (OUTER EDGE OF MIRROR) PRESS FIRMLY AT THE CENTRE OF THE MIRROR TO ENGAGE THE RETAINING CLIP....IF YOU NEED TO REMOVE MIRROR INSERT A FLAT TOOL BEHIND THE LOWER EDGE AND LEVER IT FROM THE CLIPS.. HOPE I WAS OF SOME HELP TO YOU...
