    Default Removing chrome window strips?

    Tried pulling these off but don't want to break them as I found out how much they are from stealers. How do I get them off?


    Thanks.

    They pull straight up, no trick to it, no screws or clips, just pull, but put pressure evenly along the length of them so you don't bend them.

    Edit: except the ones on the rear quarters, those are part of the window assembly.
