Anyone know how to remove this piece of trim? I want to reuse it after painting the car. I have removed the window, and taken off the rubber window sweep but see no screws to remove the chrome. Are there those little white clips that slide on little studs that hold this piece on or what? It is secured very well I must say. Thanks

Yup, little plastic clips on to welded on studs. Been 25 years since I did one but IIRC 1"- 1 1/2" putty knife outta do it. You'll buy new plastic pieces for reinstall.
