Well the first time I did it I had to give it a bit more pressure and loosen it up on all the sides. Because it should only be snapped in place. I don’t remember mine having glue the first time but I do remember I needed pry tools to get it off. I used some ifixit spudgers.

I used a plastic card (like credit card) to slide between the panels along the edge - it went smooth!
