How to replace the Digitizer

History

I have a cracked digitizer, and have purchased a replacement. Note: This is JUST the digitizer, as my LCD screen is fine. I get the phone broken down as far as I can get, with the screen component completely apart, but can't seem to figure out how to get the digitizer off of the LCD screen. Do I need a heat gun or something?

Usually when the digitizer and LCD need to be separated, you'll need a heat gun, thin prying tools, and a lot of patience. My two prying tools of choice are our guitar picks or a plastic opening tool.
