How to remove windshield moldings from 2006 dodge pt cruiser convertible

REMOVAL

CAUTION: Replacement of the header molding retaining clips is required anytime a header molding is reinstalled. Failure to replace the snap-type retaining clips can result in poor header molding retention.


1.Lower the convertible top.
2.Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, remove the windshield header molding (1) by releasing the eleven snap retainers (one at a time) from the windshield opening frame (2).


NOTE: When replacement of the snap-type retaining clips is required, make sure NOT to damage the retainer towers on the back of the header molding. Damage to the towers will require replacement of the header molding.
3.If the windshield header molding is to be reused, remove and discard the eleven snap retainers from the molded plastic towers on the back of the molding.

1.Remove the header molding (Refer to 23 - Body/Exterior/MOLDING - Removal) .
2.Remove the screw (1) that secures each A-pillar molding (2) to the windshield opening frame.
3.Using a trim stick C-4755 or equivalent, remove each A-pillar molding by releasing the two snap retainers from the windshield opening frame.

When releasing the header molding clips, do you pry from the rear of the molding or the windshield side of the molding?
I try each side.to keep from bending anything to loosen them up.
