Detatchment Question

so im now wanting to recolor my interior but not sure how to detatch them from the car so I can paint them.





How exactly can i detatch them? are they screwed in somehow or am I able to just pull them off and pop it back in?

thanks

in short, no they're not screwed, just clips... the ones on the doors, however, do have screws... but that's it,

You're gonna have to tug pretty hard, they are in there tight. I'd say push down and pull out. I never heard of anyone breaking the actual trim, but a few have broke the clips, which you can buy at autozone or somewhere I think. If you have anyone to help it makes it easier. If not just pull hard, you'll most likely hurt you fingers in the process and about crap yourself thinking you broke something when it makes the super loud noise when it uncliips.

Mods: debaged, carbon fiber hood, painted interior trim, lowered

Yeah, ya gotta pull hard... and they make the God awfulest sound when they break free... sounds like they break every time, Ive done it....3-4 times & havent broken any yet... *knocks on desk*

when I take them out, i pull from the top of the trim... ive also found its kinda easier to stick a flat head screw driver down in there & push on the clip, but sometimes that gets on my nerves so i just yank it real hard.

I'm pretty sure the one neighbor thought I was crazy when I removed mine. I was so frustrated with it, that I just grabbed it as hard as I could and it made the crazy loud noise and unclipped. Pleased with what I had just done I yelled a triumphant "****in' right!" and then threw the trim piece into the front yard. Meanwhile said neighbor was walking her dog and her all this go down.
