Default Trim Removal

I am wondering if anyone knows how to remove the plastic trim above the windshield so as not to damage it. I have a little leak and need to seal it up and would like to reuse the trim. I would add a pic but I haven't the faintest idea how.

Thanks. I kinda figured that was going to be the answer but I was hoping it might be different. Should just get a glass place to reseal it.

it is adhered into the adhesive that sticks the windshield in. It won't look good enough to re-use when it comes off.

Whoever installed the windshield on my first 95, tried to put this piece in after the windshield was set. It looked like ***.
