at the ends of each piece is a small nut that has to be removed from behind the appropriate interior panel....after those are removed, use a screwdriver and a piece of cardboard or something to keep from scratching the paint....simply push under the trim and lightly lift upwards, it'll snap off the plastic retaining clips

also...all the trim's aluminum, with few exceptions, not chrome...so careful, it bends easily
