**IF YOU PLAN ON SHAVING YOUR MOLDINGS THAN YOU CAN DO IT THE EASY WAY**
Un screw this piece and the side molding will become loose which u can start to pull off. Just pull enough where the plastic pieces are visible and use some dike plyers to cut off each plastic part to break free from the molding. Use a flat head screw driver to prye the other small molding on the quater panel and use the dike plyers to cut the clips (the moldings will be runied but i'm sure you won't be putting them back on unless your switching to the JDM side moldings or replacing them, and if you are please follow the directions after this)
Remove door panels:
I didn't get pictures on how to remove the door panel but here is a picture from TI: Use a basic Phillips screw driver to remove all screws.
Remove the screw that is here:
You may be able to remove with your fingers but if its too hard just get some grip plyers to loosen it & it should come off.
Each red circle is where each clip is, thats holding the molding. You can remove the clips with your hands no tools needed.
There are 2 clips that are not shown in the pictures which are hidden but just make sure you check twice for the white clips.
Once you remove all the clips the side molding should come off. Just make sure each clip is off so you won't break anything. There is a total of 6 clips & 1 screw on the DOOR molding.
To remove the other side molding ON THE LEFT SIDE:
You will need to remove the interior piece to get access to the clips. I circled the area where the clips are since you can't see them in the picture. They are 3 red clips.
(IF you plan on removing the moldings for GOOD, just use a flat head screw driver to prye the molding off enough to cut the first clip with your dike plyers, and do the same with the other 2 clips instead of removing the interior piece)
You have officially removed your side moldings. Now go get them shaved and painted and you will be done. Any questions about this write up, please feel free to PM me. I hope everybody understands this write up, its really easy to remove the moldings. I did it without re-searching how to remove the moldings (thats what boredom does to you LOL) so hopefully you can figure this out, if not please do not pick up a tool and slap yourself.
