Just the glass, the assembly is intact, the glass came loose and basically fell off. The heating element film is still attached to frame but almost off plastic frame. Ordered new glass and cannot find any good R&R information. Should not be difficult but don’t want to screw it up.

O.k., Volvo's service manual can be vague on this repair.Pictures but no wording.Below is what the service manual shows for replacing it.Basically, it clips onto the motor and a flat tool is used to pop off the frame to remove it and unplug it then you can plug in the new glass and put it center on the motor and use the palm of your hand flat on the glass to massage it to lock onto the motor.In the link below you will see what is offered for repair into.It should pop off with a flat tool or wedge and then push on to lock onto the motor.
