Trim moldings Dilemma

Postby Gophat » Mon Feb 06, 2017 9:37 pm

Is there a tool you guys recommend to uninstall the trim moldings from the quarters. I am about to respray just the outer portion and I wanted to remove the trims. I know taking out the interior to reach the clips is an option. Any better tool? if not then I will begin removing the interior.

Slide them forward and pull straight out. You might break a few clips. Do not use a screwdriver to pry. Try getting some wd-40 or silicone spray behind the trim (pry with plastic tool if you must) to loosen it up and make it move.
