If you can get at it, 2 soldering irons, one on each end, works reasonably 
well.  When both ends are melted, just push the part out of the way.  
Small/light things like 0805 resistors will frequently stick to one of the 
tops by surface tension of the liquid solder.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
