Removing 87 vette interior rocker panels

Where are the clips located on the interior trim panels (Rockers) on an 87 vette. How can you release them without destroying the panel. The screws have been removed but they are still tight. If you pull to hare they may break and they are original in really good shape.

Hi Are you talking about the door panel lower rocker? If so there are no clips just screws and the door lock knob . if not most of the panels in that year are held in with screws . they are black and can be hard to find but there are very few clips Tell me the exact panel's that you want to remove and I will tell you how to remove them with out hurting them

Removin g inside sill trim

I found that they installed a mastic pad or patche, either at the factory or sometime after it was built. The pad was keeping the trim stuck to the surface. It just took alot of time to get it to let loose.
Thanks
