    Hi Trish,

    Are you able to determine if they are held there by clips or actually glued on?

    To start with wear protective gloves, safety goggles, and clothes in case they break. Begin at the easiest one and try to see with a flashlight how they are attached.

    If by clips just release the clip, If glued take a plastic putty knife and try to come between the paneling and the back if the mirrored square. Some of the paneling may come off with the glass depending on the glue used.

    Another idea to try is if you can get in there to the glued area behind the square is a product called Goo Gone to dissolve the glue, that might make it so your paneling is not damaged. Goo Gone is available at DIY stores. Or you could ask at a DIY store if they could recommend another product to do your project.

    You may also try using a blow dryer to soften the glue first then try prying it away carefully?!

    It will all depend on how they have been attached. If they are not going to be used again might be easier to push on them and see if they will break. Dont forget to use safety gear if you attempt this. Good luck.
