If the latex is not too badly degraded it should be a matter of carefully trimming a slit in the latex and then just peeling off.

If the foam has become really stuck to the latex then a) the foam is degrading and it's probably best to rebuild completely or b) the maker sprayed adhesive of some sort onto the foam prior to latexing. Slow picking is the only solution I can think of to this.

I've never really had an issue with latex sticking to the foam in any major way - is it the open celled blue foam? If it is scrap it; that stuff is a right pain. The black closed cell stuff that Alex White (and Jon Peck) uses seems to be very good for longevity and can take several rebuilds/repaints. Some of the monster weapons have been re-latexed more times than an amsterdam fetish madam.
