Removing a couple of bad pieces of laminate flooring

I have a client that wants a couple of random water damaged sheets of laminate flooring (click and lock type) removed and replaced with new pieces.
Anyone have any ideas how to do this. I know you cannot just pry them up without destroying a whole bunch of adjacent tiles.

Thanx

Jim

I am certainly not an expert, but from the single laminate job I have done, it seems that the only correct way to do this is to start at the wall and unlock and disassemble the flooring back to where it needs to be replaced. Replace your pieces and put the flooring back together.

You have the replacement pieces already?

Finding that kind of stuff months or years later can be a nightmare if you don't.

Thanx for your replies. What I ended up doing was cutting an X acroos the piece of flooring with a circular saw then I was able to get the pieces out. Actually the guy bought the wrong stuff and couldn't get the right stuff. So I had to cut and fit with a table saw. What a nightmare!!
