    Hi Guys:

    Replacing a component on a circuit board and it would be much easier if I could remove one of the heatsinks.

    Please look at the picture and advise, if you can.

    It looks like the heatsink has a couple of round steel posts that go through the circuit board but I have no idea how to remove it. It looks like solder but I don't think it is.

    You will see the 4 posts (2 for each heatsink) shown vertically in the picture.

    Thanks.

    Roger

    Thanks for all the advice, guys.

    I think it makes sense to leave the heatsink in place and work around it!

    Thanks again.

    Roger
