Mustang Trim Removal

Hi, does anyone know how to remove the trim which is painted body color that runs along the side of the windshield and across the top of the door of a 2000 Mustang GT. Thanks

The front piece is held on with screws going up into the roof rail. You get to them by pulling the window rubber seal down. It fits into a channel and comes off easy. As I remember there are some clips of some sort that hold the top. You remove the screws and then lift up and it comes off.
The rear piece is bolted on and you have to remove the interior quarter trim. Behind that you will see long studs with nuts sticking in. You have to go thru holes in the inner structure with an extension and deep socket.

I think there is one screw at the top in the front after the front piece is removed also, but you would see that if it is there, pretty self explainatory.

DO NOT FORCE THESE PARTS. They come off very easily once all the screws and nuts are removed.

Thanks, I found some clips but could not find anything near the roof. I'll pull the rubber down now. I was afraid to force because it feels pretty weak and I don't want to break it.
