Using two hands (not the one illustrating this picture), grasp the heatsink with one hand and the PCB with the other. Gently pull them apart, moving one hand up and down slowly. It should separate with little trouble. <b>Do not pull the card with a lot of force because you could damage it</b> - check that you have removed all the screws in the previous steps, and that there is nothing obstructing it.
