I am trying to save a few bucks by removing all the trim to have the c-pillar and rear door repainted, and I cant quite figure out how to get the roof to side trim piece out. Perhaps I just need to pull harder, but wanted to see if anyone had a better suggestion. I also need to remove the rear passenger door window trim as well. the side trim was a piece of cake.

Bumping an ancient thread here, I am trying to learn how to remove mine as well. I have the pano roof on my 2005 sedan, and the aluminium roof gutter / windshield trim has peeled in several spots. I would like to remove it to either repaint it black or perhaps jusst polish out the aluminium. I believe it just prys off but I really don't want to damage anything. Has anyone done this?

Yes it just pulled off. Be carful around the roof rack points. It's actually pretty cheap to get a prepainted replacement piece. Also using nylon pry tools works well

Thanks! Glad to know they're cheap to replace. I'll probably give it a shot refinishing mine, but if I break any clips or anything taking it apart or if it doesn't turn out well I'll just go pick up a set of new ones.
