I always sprayed the pad liberally with Fantastic, 409 or similar - very slippery and won't harm rubber if reusing the item. Then clamp the pad in a vise and use a flat punch to knock the shoe holder off the pad. That works for most situations. In the worst case scenario I would take a dremel type tool and a cutoff disk, carefully cut down the middle of the pad lenthwise and then you should be able to remove the two sections (just made that one up, but should work). Use the 409 to insert the new pad with the least effort.
