Open the glass to the full open position and then support it with something sturdy because when you remove the "struts" (they aren't called struts but I can't remember what they are called either) gravity will take over. There is a little clip you need to open with a flathead screwdriver. Once that is opened you essentially slide or pop off the U shape holder. It's really easy. Just make sure you have whatever is supporting the glass remain there until you replace both "struts" as one is not sufficient to hold the glass.
