Remove corian backsplash

I currently have a corian countertop with corian backsplash (about 4" high). I would like to keep the corian countertop, remove the corian backsplash and install a tile backsplash. I'm told the only way to do this is to remove the entire countertop, bring it to the corian shop and have the backsplash cut off there. Does anyone have a suggestion of how to remove the corian backsplash in place?

Thanks

It depends. Is it an after apply backsplash which is held in place with silicone, or coved, in which case it's integral with the countertop? If it's after apply just use a utility knife to cut the caulk at the top of the backsplash, then use a flat bar to slowly pry the splash away from the wall. Go slowly so you don't break anything or punch holes in the wall. Clean up the silicone from the countertop and install your tile. If it's coved then it's not a do-it-yourself project. It will need to be done in a shop by a fabricator. In this case I'd leave it in place and install the tile above it.
