Sometimes we received the CCD cam with the UV/IR-cut with AA filter glued on using UV-adhesive. App[lying heat gently from the boundary in four sides of the cover glass allows the glass to be pushed away.

The tools I used are
- I use a heatgun (designed for surface mount devices)
- flat blade screw driver to push the filter glass away
- 91% alcohol to remove residual adhesive on the CCD glass

There may be other methods.
