I have a bathroom vanity (BORG type) that the mirror has cracked. This mirror IS the door to the case. Maybe "vanity" is the wrong term here. It's a wall hanging cabinet that goes above the vanity. The door is the mirror. Now with that out of the way, HOW would I replace said mirror? Two pins act as "hinges", one at the top, and one at the bottom. Mirror has a thin plywood backer. Plywood is 3/8" thick, with the mirror glued to it. Mirror size is 14" wide, by 19-5/8" tall. Mirror has beveled edges. Could I just "peel" the broken mirror off the plywood backer, or try to find another mirrored "door". There is a face-frame around the door opening. Any ideas out there?
I would try to get the old mirror out and then have a glass company cut a new one. Being a contractor, i've run into many situations where i need glass or mirrors cut. I've found a local glass cutter here in my town and they can duplicate almost an glass or mirror i've needed. I think they will be the biggest help for you.
