Remeber : heat is your friend...lol

Just heat up the head with a hair dryer and carefully unscrew them.
I always change the screws in my engines for allen head hex screws in the first disassembly...just my 2 cents...

u only have one screw gone or all? If only got one, remove the other 3 then shake the heatsink to create a bit of free play then try remove the screw again!
