Front window trim:
Remove your mirrors. There is a link to a Scooby Mods page in this thread:

Next, remove the lower trim window trim. Pull the weather stripping back to reveal two push tabs. Use a small screwdriver to push the tab and remove it. Once you loosen the front, gently pull the trim back to reveal the rear push tab and use a screwdriver to remove it. See picture 1 below. Each piece of trim has 2 of these—one in the front, one in the back. Once both are removed, set the lower trim aside.


Pull all the weather stripping away from the window.


At the front of the window trim, pull the tab out of the body (pic 2). At the rear of the window, remove the Phillips screw (pic 3). Note the black anchor tab to the left of the screw, you will eventually need to push this out to remove the trim.


The trim the goes around the window has several mounting points. See pics 4-7. Gently pry up the trim (it is metal, not plastic, and it seems pretty stout) and slide a small screwdriver under it to push the tab down, while simultaneously pushing out on the trim. I eventually got the hang of it and it came out pretty easy—nothing broke. For every two dimples in the metal, there is one tab, located under the trim that needs pushed down and out. Once all these are removed, the upper window trim can be pulled away from the car.


Rear window trim:
Remove the lower window trim just like you did in the front. Note there are two pins in the back, and one in the front.



Pull all the weather stripping away from the window (pic 8). Be very careful/gentle with the weather stripping at the rear of the window. There are rubber push tabs holding it in place. If you aren’t careful, the rubber will tear.


Remove the screw at the front of the window trim (pic 9). Remove the 2 screws at the rear of the trim (pic 10). Use the method you perfect on the fronts to push the tabs down and out and remove the trim.


Re-installation TBD
