My stock ones are both cracked.
I took a putty knife that was a little over an inch wide and sharpened the (end) edge so I could slip it under the pull edge from the top instead of going inside the door. It cut though the rubbery adhesive pretty well. I tried using a heat gun, but it didn't seem to make a lot of difference. Once the piece is off, I can trim off the excess and glue down the new one.
By the way, the old pull was pretty much destroyed in removing it.
Not sure which adhesive, but leaning to normal silicone sealant. I am putting carbon replacements and there is a lot of open area between the door top and the pull. So, I might put a few globs in to fill some of the void before trying the final glue down.
