Hi Viper,

Just gently heat it with a lighter or even a hairdrier and it will pull off, they are only stuck on with glue. Whatever you do don't burn your fingers, use an old glove or something suitable.

DONT use super glue or Araldite when you put the new one on, you will never get it off again. Use a general purpose glue stick, again with a lighter.
