Should soften with some heat. Heat gun, indirect propane torch, etc.

The problem with the makitas is that they are build with a bunch of glued parts (softer rubber for comfort) so if I apply heat I will disrupt their bond too...

according to their site, either heat or acetone will remove the glue.

Acetone takes everything off everything and doesn't hurt anything underneath

As a side story, living in Colombia acetone was absolutely prohibited in fact a 55 gallon barrel will go for more than half a million dollars in the black market..(basic to produce cocaine)

Been kind of naive and about 20 years old I when to a big quemical distribution plan because I was looking for acetone to make the wings of a "indoor flyer airplane" ( you dissolve acetate on it and the result is a really light and thin layer of material) anyway the guys made me wait for more than a few minutes, well the police arrive took me to their station and interrogate me for a few hours, for sure they have no idea about indoor flyers...

Oh the stories of my infancy...


So where do you get acetone in the US...???

You might have to sign for a quantity bigger than a quart, though.

Okay the acetone does not work as well as I spect it and I rub on the same exact place for about 15 minutes, what does do is to soften the glue so you can pealed off carefully with a x acto knife..

I also place the rear cover fully submerge on acetone, to see what will happen..

the rubber parts kind of came back to their natural form so I glue them with E6000 and is holding really well..'

Man somehow clean tools fell so much better in your hands..

Next time, wipe it off with a wet rag (water) before it dries. Much easier than trying to get it off afterwards, as you've discovered.
