As we know that we cant make changes in Managed solution but some times we need to customize the solution. Please follow these steps

1. Extract the Solution Zip file.
2. Open solution.xml file in notepad application. Search for Managed Tag (E.g.: <Managed>1</Managed>), Now change the value from 1 to 0.
3.Zip the files again and import it.

That’s it The Solution is changed to Unmanaged. This can be imported and customized as per the need.
