Allure flooring repair

I have Allure vinyl flooring (12" X 36") with the glue joints and I would like to replace one piece. I have a full piece from the same manufacturing lot, so match-up will be fine. How does one "unstick" the edges? Will a heat gun work to soften the glue? Has anyone done a repair on this flooring? The Allure instructions don't address the replacement of a full tile.

Thanks, Fran

I ran a screw into my flooring. To replace I used a sharp utility knife to cut a 2" wide X 24" long slot in center of bad plank. Stuck my hand into slot toward top overlap. May be best to start at a corner. I then carefully pushed down on bottom plank to break seal. Slowing worked around bad plank with this method. Cutting out more of plank as it came loose. When I got top side completed started working on bottom side by pushing up on bad plank and pushing down adjoining plank. Did the same on end. Did this in 80 weather without putting any heat on flooring. Hardest part was putting new plank under mating plank. Had to clean up a little bit of old plank seal from mating planks before installing new plank. Whole project took about 15 minutes.
