Someone , who shall remain anonymous, lifted the liftgate under the garage door and dented the latch for the window. As a result, the window will not open. That is why I need to get the trim panel off and push the dent out. Do I have any way to lift the trim panel away without opening the window?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
The followup answer does not appear anywhere on the screen. Should I look somewhere else?
Let me see what I might have on that, depending on how bad the dent actually is. BRB



The trim panel will normally come off even with the window closed. They aren't held on by the glass, you just may have to pull it up and away to get it off.

Thanks, I got it off with a bit of effort. It appears that the dent, though not very large, was binding the clips at the top. It is now off. Thanks for the help.
Good job, glad to heat that you got it. Your welcome and come again, anytime, thanks
