How to remove OEM GFX rear diffuser?

I've done some searches on this, and I've found plenty of threads talking about how to install them, but does anyone have any tips on how to remove them? I'm installing the Revolution rear diffuser with quad center exhaust and need to take off my OEM GFX rear diffuser without breaking it (already have a buyer lined up) and without destroying my bumper.

I'm assuming it will involve a heat gun or blow dryer to heat up the adhesive, but beyond that I'm just shooting in the dark. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help Ofer. You're the man. Got a good workout getting that adhesive off, lol.

Did you just heat up the diffuser and pulled it off?

Yeah, it's the sides that were the most difficult. The part that runs along the back pulled off fairly easy.

The top part is all adhesive. It's been a long time since I've removed mine, but I remember there being a couple screws somewhere.
