Gently slide a plastic card or other thin pry tool under the adhered component.

It may help to gently wiggle or twist the card as you go. If you're separating a battery, be careful not to deform or puncture it.

If you're struggling, apply a few more drops of adhesive remover and wait about a minute before trying again.

If your device has an especially tight fit and you have trouble inserting a tool, try working a piece of floss or wire underneath the component, and pull it side-to-side in a sawing motion to separate the adhesive.

Lift and separate your newly-unglued component.
