There should be clips for the sink but the tops are often just glued on with silicone caulk.

I would start with the assumption you're going to replace the whole thing. If you manage to separate the two pieces without damaging the bowl, great.

You can get them apart if you work carefully. Work a box cutter blade between the sink & counter, then try opening and expanding with a thin bladed putty knife. Then when it's opened up enough I use a painters tool to apply some prying force to get them apart. It's a bit fussy and tedious but it can be done.
