Here's what I did. I used the above guide and then made one with some tips that I discovered/ran into along the way...

http://celicagarage.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1185

I can't seem to find the post I made here. Biggest tip. Leave it in the FULL 15 minutes and you should be able to get it apart in one complete pull. Then it won't be all warped from prying it with a knife. An extra set of hands when pulling it apart helps too.

Good luck man!
