    If you just need help getting it off I have 2 methods. #1 go wheelin in some rocks and it will peel them right off. #2 if you like your paint too use a pair of needlenose visegrips grab the corner and pull them off. They are on with some nasty 2 sided tape, When I did it I DAed the adheasive off so I have no clue if the remover will work

    it might depend on what year and trim design and all..
    but on my 79..
    the rear trim is mostly held in place by 2 sided tape, but at the ends of the strip its held on by a piece of plastic that goes in through a hole in the body

    but on the front, its held by screws with these metal plates that the trim wraps around

    having found that out too late, i drive a blazer with several small holes and alot of screws sticking out of my fenders

    My 84 has the double-sided tape style mouldings everywhere but on the rear corners, where they are aluminium. They are held on with little tin clips.
