Anybody ever try this? Took my PCM out, separated the belligerent case and find the board is screwed and glued down with something that looks like semi flowable seam sealer. I tried cutting it out as much as I could, but does not budge. Tried heat gun and acetone on scrap bits, nothing.

I have already been down PCM repair companies hell and this is my 3rd PCM after dealing with 4 companies. Found a local guy who mostly fixes older TV's and Stereos, but has also made some car owners happy too. Brought mine in and he needs access to the back side of the case.
My only current thought is to find a thin L-shaped cutting tool I can slip under the edge and saw around the perimeter. That's assuming the sealer is only on the edges!
