Removing wall to wall mirror

I'm remodeling a powder room with a wall to wall mirror. I don't see any clips. Are there any tricks to this (like hidden clips)? Or do I just scrape it off the wall? It goes all the way to the ceiling.

They are usually glued with a mastic of some sort. Can't be salvaged. Are you prepared to throw it out? If not, then don't try to remove it.

Use lots of tape to cover the surface, wear good protection and hammer away.

It's glass so use extreme caution!

I worked for a guy that had temporary holiday stores in malls. In order to get the best monthly rentals the renter was obligated to do all the interior makeovers. I can't tell you have many mirrors I had to remove, They were stuck to the walls with mastic. You must be well protected from glass slivers as they will be everywhere. The mirrors literally explode when you try to pry them off the wall.
