Removing transition

I have a vinyl bathroom floor that I want to replace with tile. There's currently a transition from the hall wood floor down to the vinyl floor. It's a glued down engineered floor. How do I go about removing the transition because I'll want to replace it with a t-molding once the tiles are in?

Thanks.

Removal method will be based upon how the reducer was installed. Did they predrill and use nails, countersinking and filling holes. Or, did they glue the reducer in place? Once removed, you will need to leave the expansion gap and if both floors are the same height, you can drop in a T-mold.

I think it was glued. But I'm guessing there was a tongue that fit into the groove on last piece of wood flooring.
