REmolving interior panels

This is for my wife's car, '95 Prizm. I want to install a CD changer in the trunk. I have to run the power cords, CD output (input to dash unit) and wired remote. I need to remove the molding at the door sill/rug intersection, kick panel, etc. to pass the cables from the trunk to the fuse box, antenna, etc. I looked and could not see any screws. I'm assuming they have some sort of plastic clip. How do I remove these without destroying the clips?

Thanks,

BIll

Most of these panels have some sort of hidden internal clip that is serrated or christmas tree like attached to the panel and press fitted into a hole in the auto. My only advice is to get a slim, flat tool or stiff putty knife or screwdriver and work it under the panel and slowly pry it up. Hopefully the retainer will come out with the panel and be reusable. If they get messed up check your local auto paint store, which usually has packs of clips or go here http://www.mrgusa.com/fasindex.htm
