You'll need to contact Apple on that one. I'm not sure if the glass is glued or has sealant adhering it to the LCD. The newer Apple displays for the 21.5" and 27" iMac machines are built that way. Which means it's very difficult without proper equipment and technical know how to change the glass.

To be honest if it were my display, I'd have it done professionally. $$$
