Most likely riveted on.
If so, drill them out. Visit hardware store and buy yourself rivet gun (more like a pair of pliers) and some rivets. Pay attention to the size,
Seems to me replacement rubber would have come with some attachment mechanism?

if it is the little metal caps on the end of the rod then you can take them off with pliers (bend them) or with a screwdriver and hammer.
i'm sure they have some special tool someplace to deal with these kind of pressure connectors, but they have always given us new ones with the flap and those just go on by tapping them lightly with a small hammer.
if they are some other kind of connector then good luck, perhaps someone else will know... :)
