Several ways. but why are you replacing them? Shouldn't be necessary. If the 
feet are worn, then so is the cam!!!

Nothern Tool Supply sells a neat tool for grabbing on the lifter and hanging 
on so you can pull it out. About $23. Another way is to get some "piano wire" 
from a music shop. It is hard stuff. Bend the end over 90 deg and hook that 
end into the top of the lifter and pull the lifter out.
