I have a pdf file. Some text pieces are highlighted in yellow. I want to remove those highlights, because the color is a hell to read. Or change them to a more normal color like light grey.

Is this possible?

Attempt to the text in your PDF viewer. Does it let you select individual words or not. PDFs could be just a big image. Anyway, if you can select the text, why not just copy and paste it into your favorite text editor, and read it there. –  Zoredache Feb 28 '14 at 18:07
I ended up uploading it here: www.pdfescape.com. Edited and downloaded it again. –  Kiril Mar 2 '14 at 22:32
