Use a soldering iron. Place the tip inside the bell and hold it for a few seconds. The plastic will become soft and the bell can be pulled out.

Yup. Can do the same in reverse to re install them to the new plastic. Super easy. I always pull and throw them in the tumbler before re installing. They come out real nice.
