Default Closet door pull replacement

As many of you know the door pulls in the mirrord doors are held in with a silicone seal/glue. I found an easy way to remove them.(I'm sure I'm not the only one) Get out your trusty heat gun and get the pulls nice and hot(try not to burn down your coach) they will come out with a minimal of effort. I pulled mine out with a small pair of pliers. I re-installed the new ones with super strong hot melt glue. I warmed up the pulls so the glue didn't dry to fast and pressed them in. This also should make it easier to replace them next time.
