It appears the USB cable connects to the two USB headers and you would separate and pry off just the cables from the header by using a flat screwdriver as mentioned.
The USB 3.0 type A ports have a groove around them so they slot in place on the PCB. This is where adhesive has been used. You might get away with a flat head screwdriver but if it's really stuck on there like it was on mine, a hobby knife is more effective to cut through most of the adhesive.
