are u talking about the pinstripe? If you are then most likely you can remove it yourself. just heat it up with hair dryer and start to pull. Use goof off/goo gone to get the residue off. Unfortunately, if your car is like mine, then it might be painted on, which would require someone else to do it.

just heat it up with a hair dryer and pull it off. it is just held on by double stick tape. You can paint it if you want but I think they look better without that on there, especially since there is no groove in the body.

Are you talking about the side molding??

If you are, then expect to take a trip to the body-shop to fill the "holes" behind the strip.
(2-doors are held on by 3M tape but 4-doors are both clipped and taped)

Do like Robb said above with the hot air dryer....get some floss or fishing line and wedge it behind the moulding...then just pull as the moudling is heated up...should slide off...that is what I did with my bro's Cavalier moudlings, came right off!!!

I didn't know that "fishing line" would cut through the plastic clips

IT'S A 4-DOOR...IT HAS CLIPS BEHIND IT






JUST GO BUY "COLOR-MATCHED" MOLDINGS AND REPLACE
