Just use a screwdriver to prise out the little metal clips at the glass end, and pull the struts off. For future reference you'd probably find it useful to buy a Haynes or FSM (preferably both).

I went to Napa to get the replacements. It helps to have 2 people, so the glass can be held up while you swap them out. Like AVR2 said, there are metal clips that need to be popped out with a flathead screwdriver. Press the new ones onto the existing mounting bracket.

Thanks to all for getting back to me, I thought they would pop on the glass end but wasn't quite sure.Now I know.....
As for MurphDog, I would check the window mounting hinges to make sure they were nice and tight.
