Thumbs up How To: Remove chrome window trim

Sounds like there's a lot of people having trouble with this, so I pulled mine off and took pictures.

Step 1 - Remove screws
Front:


Rear:


Step 2 - Remove trim


You need to apply firm pressure when trying to slide the trim horizontally. Once you're able to slide it out about an inch (#1, see pic), then you can start pulling up and wiggling it up and out (#2, see pic). Here's a picture showing which direction each piece of trim needs to be slid, and in what order.


Trim slid out on driver's side front door


Trim slid out on driver's side front door (by mirror)

Trim completely removed


Front and back of trim


I sprayed these with Plasti-Dip: http://forums.evolutionm.net/09-rall...ndow-trim.html
