They are just friction fit, so you can safely mangle, cut, and destroy your old one to get it off.
If you wanted to get tactful and fancy ... and do it right ... I think that warming it up with a heat gun might make it soft and pliable enough that you could pull it off. Remember to wear gloves, or you'll be doing the "hot potato" thing.
