Default Rear screen trim removal

Regarding this...

Has anyone got a nailed down technique for removing it and not cracking any of the black clips that clip to the posts around the screen, or is it ALWAYS a case of just levering the thing up gently?

I had it in my mind that the blue clips are supposed to be slid out to allow you to just lift the whole thing off without damaging anything, or is this just wishful thinking?

The clips slide in the trim piece, and OFF the car seem to slide out from the black clips, but I have no idea when fitted to the car if this is remotely possible or not....

I managed to get my fingertips under the rubber a little, and worked along sideways very gradually and gently, pulling it up a bit at a time, got the rubber and chrome up in a piece.


I didn't remove it completely - just along the bottom to the corners, but might work for you.

A bit of soapy water can help slide the bits apart.---
