    Rear Quarter Window Trim Removal

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Has anyone removed the rear quarter window trim? Wanting to remove it as the tape has come loose around the bottom and want to pop the trim off and replace the tape to adhere it back on. I know some have swapped out the trim to black optics and hope someone can give some pointers to remove and replace the trim. I think it should just pull off but looking for guidance.

    Use a mini plastic squeegee or bike tire levers and pry gently...its held in with a couple clip that are molded onto the trim.

    I was looking at a service manual is looked like you almost had to take the rear quarter window off (cut the glue/bond) to be able to remove the trim or that may of just been or the clips as it was not very clear.

    Were you able to get it off? Curious to know because I'd like to upgrade my chrome to black optics, IF I can find the BO trim for a decent price...

    They just pop right off...no glue, use Pedros bike tire levers, they work great for getting trim off.
