    Hi Guys,

    How do I remove the drip rail trim without damaging them? I've got some rust in that area and they have to be removed :(?

    I got them off :hurray. What I did was:
    1. I removed the door arch rubbers and the thin metal strips that hold them in place.
    2. I used the broadest spanner I had pry the bottom of the trim off the gutter, stating from the quarter glass and ending at the windshield pillar. Care must be taken not to widen the the bottom of the trim too much, because they will be loose when they are put back on.
    3. After that I undid the rest by hand.

    There may be a more conventional way of doing this, but I sure don't know it.

    I honestly don't know what you took off ... have a picture of it? :)

    Unfortunately I don't have a pic of mine, but that chrome thing was what I was referring to.
