Removing Sikoflex

I am wishing to remove my console and fit a fuel tank. I made a good job using sikoflex - any suggestions for easy removal?

Thanks in advance

Remove all fasteners then use a thin wire and "saw" throught the joint. I use a 0.9mm dia. welding wire, but anything similar will do the job......

Thanks for replies - was contemplating the "cheese wire" method - suspect some swearing may be involved!
