I would cut the old chip out but I wasn't sure if John wanted the option of refitting it. The best option is a desoldering pump, they're much less expensive than they used to be. I have one of the ZD915 ones that are around 100 and it is excellent. The plunger style ones at 5 work well if your not doing too many chips or you have the patience of a statue, just heed Sirius's advice about not forcing anything; if you've removed enough solder and freed the pins as described the chip will almost fall out.
