Replace plank of Allure Flooring

We've had the vinyl Allure planking floor down in motorhome about three years, love it, had no problems. We've decided to do a little more remodeling, taking out a chair that was screwed down the floor and build an entertainment center. Any advise how to replace the one pc of planking that has the screw holes? I have extra flooring left.

make a cut in the middle of plank with sharp utility knife lengthwise. make a cut from each corner to the first cut. You should be able to get your fingers in the cuts- if the knife goes thru to subfloor. Use a hair dryer to make cuts easier to make. It is surgery and takes a while

Hair dryer or heat gun to warm the edges and a putty knife to slide along the edges. Done it this way several times.
