Exactly how I would do itJust use a hair drier on low to medium heat setting, and low to medium speed. Move it around over the tank pad, not just in one area. After a few minutes gently pick on one edge of the pad and slowly peel it back. Keep the hair drier working if needed, but usually it should be warm enough after a few minutes. Once the pad is off remove any gum residue (I've used WD40 with fairly good results in the past). Hope this helps.
