Foam pads 5, attached to a large metal or plastic (for example, polycarbonate or phenolic) component 1 by a two-sided pressure-sensitive adhesive sheet 3, may be removed, along with only one layer 4 of two layers 2 and 4 of adhesive, by heating the component. The other adhesive layer 2 remains on the component 1 to provide a base for attaching a new adhesive-backed foam pad.
