Trim removal

Anyone have any tips, tricks, or special mojo for getting trim off of a car undamaged? Tool recommendations? Tutorials? Videos? I really need to get a handle on trim removal. I seem to fight it everytime. Most of what I work on are Chrysler products.
Thanks,
David

Harbor Freight has plastic upholstery removal tools under 'autobody' and mini pick tools under 'precision hand tools'. Stiff putty knife you can get anywhere, just blunt the corners first.

There have been too many total changes in molding clips over the years to be any more helpful, sorry but you just have to figure each style out one-at-a-time. Some actually are designed to break them off and buy new (warranty tracking).
