^beat me to it, lol.

find a big enough screwdriver or piece of metal that you can wedge in there...i used a chizel (not the best method though). It will definatly help to have an extra set of hands to hold the screw driver straight....wedge it sideways in the slot.

Map gas torch. If you still can't get it you will probably have to bust it off.
