Default How to unsolder silver solder from a component legs?

Desperate needs call for desperate measures.

Cut off the unit using either a fine Dremel wheel, or a hand file.
Rinse everything with 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove the scarf.
Then remove the individual legs with a toothpick and enough heat - follow the suggestions using 37/63 solder - and a solder sucker.

And, with patience, there you are.
