Default Remove Plastic Trim

How do I go about removing the plastic trim along the carpet and the doors from the front of the car to the rear? i'd like to run some cables and i want to take the plastic off so it'll be easier.

Pull straight up. You may need to remove your B pillar trim first. It pulls straight out after removing the screws.

i dont recall any screws in the B pillar trim... move the seat back and pull them straight off.. then pull the bottom trim pieces up and kinda towards you.. you can feel them pop

At least one of my cars has screws holding the B-pillar trim.

My 93 has screws on the sill trim he asked about, (used to until I upgraded the trim to 95 style). My 95 doesn't have screws from the factory.

it is held in with push in retaining clips, the plastic kind with flaps on it

start at the top if its tough, between the plastic and the headliner, pull down and toward you outwards

stick your fingers between the plastic b-pillar and the weatherstriping trim and pull straight off.. i believe there are 3 clips total per door.. dont worry if you break a clip, the are at any parts store.. just dont break the piece on the panel that holds the clip!
