Hiya Phill

They just prise and slide off, the clips normally breaking in the process so you’ll need new clips.

You can use a plastic pry tool to help you, large flat trim remover.

I’ve asked Richard - he’s going to try to come online tonight and see how he can help you. He’s a technique to remove them without breaking which would be even better.

From Richard who had some trouble posting:

Morning bud give them a right good clean with warm water by poring it down the back to flush all the crap out. Then on the door at the front heat up the first inch or so with a heat gun or hairdryer to slightly soften the plastic then remove this one towards the rear or the car it should slide off off easy with the door open

For the rear quarter repeat this but slid it off into the door aperture

The front small wing one should also slide backwards when the doors closed this is the hardest one to remove.
