How to replace the feet?

How to remove the insulating material covering the backside of the feet on the backplate?

I have to replace the feet but the black plastic material stuck on the underside seems to be superglued and it appears I cant remove it without damaging it.

Will hot air work or any glue removal solution is required?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can get a set of feet for $5. I probably replace 10-=15 feet a week. My main tool is my pocket knife. To get the pin in the correct posit I put the sticky side on the tip of my blade with the pin in the 12 o’clock position, look through the hole to spot the pin, then move it forward into position. Sounds like your feet may have been replaced before. Again I just use my pocket knife to clean up the holes. On the inside I really don’t worry about scratching it up as the scratches help create a mechanical bond. After the feet are in place, I use just a little super glue around where the inter plastic circle fits into the hole.

If I were you I would just buy a new lower case because I would assume that the feet would come loose again because this has happened to me. ''I have the part linked here''.
