I have a spot or rust under the glass top left of the left 3/4 panel.

There is a piece of plastic 'chrome' trim I will need to remove to repair rust.

Can this piece of trim be removed without taking out glass?

It's night here, sorry about the bug in the picture.

I believe it just pops up.


Pry under with a trim knife.


The pieces on the door have screws in the ends under the top of the rubber door seals.

Thank you!  Wanted to check before I started prying :D


Anyone know if I'll need to heat it?
