I know this an old post,but I wanted to throw a bit of info out there.

You can use your hot air wand to remove it.
Use Kapton tape and a aluminium tape to shield the other components.
You will have to play with temps though because some of these components are harder to remove.
Flux the solder points before hand and keep the wand about 1/2 inch to 1 inch away from the component.
Keep the wand moving so you wont melt stuff.
