Broken Ball Joint Gaiter

My apologies if this has been discussed before but I couldn't find anything by searching. The gaiter on the ball joint between the Telelever wishbone and the bottom yoke of my R1200GS has split and I'm looking for the easiest way to replace it. I've ordered a used ball-joint (the gaiter isn't available as an individual part) but I'd be grateful, before I try to take the front end apart, for any suggestions about how to move the Telelever wishbone to get at the joint below, Every fastener appears to be held in place with some sort of adhesive so advice on how hot the fasteners need to be to let go would also be welcome.
