side molding

Does anyone know how to take off the side moldings? I need to change a broken clip that holds the passenger side molding above the VTEC sticker in place. I tried to take it off but couldn't. I was afraid that if I keep going it will break or something. So how do you take these things off?

Would a helms manual show how to take it off? The dealer didn't even know how. :confused:
I just check my Helm's manual and here's how to do it.

To remove side sill panel:
1.Loosen the 3 screws in the lower clips (under car) and pull the clips out.
2.Remove 4 clips from front inner fender liner
3. Just slide the side sill foward (toward front of car) to remove it.

To install side sill panel:
1.Remove 7 side clips from body by turning them 45 degrees.
2.Install 7 side clips on side sill panel.
3.Snap side sill panel onto car, reinstall 4 clips from inner fender and 3 lower clips.

NOTE:Take care not to twist side sill panel.

If you need to know anything else just reply to thread or pm me.
