Default How in the world to extract?

Ok, here's my situation.
I have a red (~650nm? who knows, but it's red) diode in a sled that I've tested with my own DIY driver. Problem is, I can't get the darn thing out of there. I just don't know what to do.
It's stuck in there not just with a press-fit, but it's glued in with that special glue stuff (all of you who have messed with a cd/dvd drive know what I'm talking about).
Any help?

Break the glue points and remove it as much as you can. Then put a small screwdriver like 1mm in the largest hole between the diode and the case. Slowly wiggle the diode out.
Take your time and don't rush it.

Thanks.
How/with what would you recommend getting the glue out?

I would use a sharp hobby knife to slice off the glue as much as you can. Be careful don't cut the pins.
You can't really remove the glue between the diode and the case.
