removing a 31 inch corian backsplash from a tile wall

We are in the process of removing old (40 year old) tile from our downstairs bathroom. Our sink has 2 pieces of corian backsplash; one on the left wall which has been removed successfully and the other on the back. It is not budging and I'm concerned it will break. Is there an easy way to remove the adhesive that is keeping it firm to the corian sink? Many of the tiles behind it have actually been partially removed.
Thanks for any help,
Kara

Sometimes this backsplash is a one piece routered into the top. But if you can see that it’s two pieces then try carefully removing any caulk that is between the top and splash. Also remove all of the caulk that is holding it to the tiles that are still there. Pry slowly and move the bar along the piece. Pry in little steps, don’t try to rip it off all at once. Keep us posted and good luck.
