To the OP; call your local collision shop or dealer and ask if they're just adhesive backed. I removed them from a friends Lexus and they were just glued on but you never know. I used the heat gun and monofilament thing. It takes some doing though and is hard to get without marring the surface. Remember these things see 100*+ air temps; and temps below -20 here in upstate NY and usually will outlast the panel they're glued to.
