    Easiest way to remove the old ones is to use a hair dryer and heat them up.
    It'll soften the glue and you should be able to pull them off the paint.

    As for fitting them......

    Tis what we're here for.

    I followed that link when i fitted mine.

    I just did it on a red hot scorching day, which would be better, so heat the arean your fitting them to with the hairdryer.

    Mine haven't peeled and they've been on for ages.
