The tape is exremely hard to remove, a heat gun will soften it but you run the risk of overheating the aluminum and warping it, if you must use a hair dryer instead.
If it is not peeling consider cleaning it and applying the new tape directly over the old. I have started to remove mine and I am afraid It is one of those projects I wish I did not start at this time.
wait untillafter the summer and prepare to spend countless hours carefully picking at it.
If it is anything like mine, I wish you the best of luck.
