It'* adhesive. Not riveted or anything, and yes, I'm 99.8 percent sure on this.

Should be able to goo gone and tooth floss it right off

I'd totally leave it on there, it prevents door-dings in parking lots.

Ok, here'* my quick attempt at making it look like your door trim is gone. I'd do a better job, but I have to go to work soon.

I can make it look better if you want me to take another crack at it when I get off work tonight.

Anyways, here you go:
