How To Remove Base Of Old Zone Panel

I am trying to remove the base of a 1998 DuroZone zonel panel from the plenum of my furance. I am installing a new zone panel.

Is the base glued to the plenum? I have tried to pound a thin prybar under the edges with no luck.

Suggestions? Thanks!

It certainly does look like it's held on with a double stick pad.
When I installed something like that I'd pre-clean the surfaces with lighter fluid.
The pad stuck great.

A putty knife may be a good tool to use.

remove base plate

OK, don't laugh, but get hair dryer and heat up base plate to where you can't touch it. Use a pair of plyers and try to start pulling it off. Also works great on old stickers on glass.
