    Take a blow dryer if you have access to one and heat up the crossbow for 20-30 seconds...it will probably get hot to the touch but should pull off much, much easier that way...though there are still good odds the double sided tape will stick to the MB. You can cut strips of 3M double sided tape to replace the factory stuff pretty easily.
