Default Main Relay Removal

So the main relay in my CRX is probably dying (hopefully just the solder joints) and my preliminary attempts to remove it have resulted in me bending the crap out of the bracket it's mounted to. Now I've found this very useful link:
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/mainrelay.html

But I'm looking for some hints to make this a little easier on an 88 CRX. Also, is the relay grounded by it's metal mounting tab or can I zip tie it somewhere easier to reach once I get it off?

Just pop the workings out and leave the plastic box mounted. Just pry it out a little on ecah end with a small screwdriver. It needs to come apart to check the solder joints anyway.

I did the one in my mom's car a while back. The new one had a slightly different case than the original, and since I couldn't get that case off, I just tucked it out of the way
