The more it came apart, the more difficult it became to get off in piece. I was just trying to remove one side, but since it is all flexible, it didn't hold up. Cells from the bottom popped out instead of the top and then the clamping force of the bottom caps was compromised. Here are some photos of the process/disaster:
The simplest way would be to undo the connections from one side for the part that needs replacing. Pass in a flat wooden stick and leverage it upward. While doing this keep the pack flat on a hard surface so that the other side does not come off as shown in the pics. (Keep the bus bars on the other side on) Start from one corner of the pack and do this skipping 2 columns. Do it gently a couple of times and the top will come off.
You could undo the connections on both for just one column from where the pack needs seperating. Place the pack at the edge of your work bench with the part that needs replacing sticking out. Hit with the butt of your palm and that part will slide off and separate itself from the pack. Or just lay the pack on its side, hold it firm with one hand and slide the part out Or just gently tap on the cap legs with a wooden mallet and it will slide off. Just undo the busbars on both the sides for this. The only bus bars that you would need to undo is for one column from where you need the pack to slide off. Once it slides off opening and re-assembling a smaller part is easier and a lot less messier and time consuming.
