Actually, there is a way to remove these if you get it wrong (this may have been covered before so if it has please forgive me).

There's a product called Bestine that can be bought at art supply stores. Fill a bottle with an applicator in it and soak the edges of the wrap. The wrap will release with almost no pressure. It's a little tricky to get the hang of but it can be done. The secret is to use a lot of the liquid and not peel faster than the liquid works. After the wrap dries (Bestine evaporates VERY quickly) you can clean, respray and reapply. Bestine doesn't dissolve spray adhesive on contact but it renders it...well...not sticky. Once you remove the wrap you can lay it on a cloth and use a cotton ball (or wipes) soaked in Bestine to remove the old adhesive.

This just came to our attention. Please do not glue the capsule on the service module. If it is glued on, it will not fit in the boxes we have ordered.
