Since desoldering PLCCs is such a pain, I warmly recommend soldering in a socket instead. Sometimes you may have to move some capacitors or other components, the Amiga motherboards are often a bit tightly spaced around the chips.

Of course if it's a chip that will eventually take a clip on upgrade, then you have no option but to solder the new part onto the motherboard.
