    Its been a few years since I have removed any glass on the cars. What is the best way to remove the stainless rear window trim without damaging it ? Also any special tool suggestions ?

    Thanks

    I use a painter's tool.

    Blade flat against the glass, slowly move the point until it catches the clip, then slowly rotate using the "squared" side (opposite of the point) as a fulcrum, and it should "pop" the trim loose from that clip.

    There are "special" tools that do the same thing, but I have found them often flimsy, and they slip or deform and I have better control with the painter's tool.

    Other folks may have tips.
