exterior door trim removal?

Post by Supercharged Nat »

Does anyone know how the metal/ alloy trim found at the base of the door glass on a mk3 is removed from the top of the door skin? The glass wiping strip/ seal is fitted to it, which came out ok but this metal trim is on really well and i dont want to force it and break / bend anything!
Thanks,
Nat.

You need to get something inbetween the trim and the top of the door to lever it upwards.
Obviously protect the paintwork well.
The clips look like this, if it helps you see what you have to do to release the trim:
