Transistion strips. Removing, installing.

I need to replace a tile that runs under a transition strip.
How is the transition striped removed? Can you reinstall a previously removed transition strip?

The strip is nailed, I'm assuming into sub floor. If so, Then if you reinstall the strip, the nails are going to line up to the original hole and have no bite, I'm not sure if it will hold in this case. Any thoughts are much appreciated.

-the picture is not what I'm working with but an example. I don't have a picture.

You may not need to remove the transition, depending on how well the tile is bonded. I would probably try taking the tile out without removing the transition and see how that goes. You'll have to be careful not to damage it, and you may have some delicate work to do to get that little bit that's underneath, but if you damage the transition, you'll be looking at spending $20-40 to replace it.
