How do you remove without damaging, the the chrome molding on the 2002. This is the molding on the outside of the door where the window rolls into the inside of the door. Not the roof molding. Again this is the molding on each of the door where if the window was down one may rest there arm as they were driving. I would like to reuse this molding but I must remove it to paint. Can someone please email me or post the answer.

Thanks

Held on by about 5 pinchy-clamps across the

length of it.

a wooden paint stir stick and a small hammer.

The stick is long enough to keep you from banging the bodywork, and thin enough so that should you damage the wood, you are likely to be damaging the chrome moulding.

No strength is required. Tap gently along the length of the moulding, working it upward.

Cheers!

put a small lip on it, so it can be rested against the bottom part of the chrome and gently tap. I start on the vent window right where the vent window starts.
