Hi there,


Yes, start by removing the corners, but I would imagine that with the original glue being so old it won't soften with heat. You could try soaking or dribbling in some solvent to soften the glue but this will probably take a few days to have any effect if at all. The quickest way is probably to work a sharp blade between the trim and the glass (being careful not to damage the heated window elements, and not to damage the trim).

Why do you need to remove the trim in the first place? It's easier if you have new trim pieces to fit as you don't need to worry about damaging the trim you're removing.

I've brought new bottom edge trim since my bottom portion is badly damaged however I wanted to get the rest off to get the anodising stripped, repolished and re anodised with the rest of the trim. Even the new bit from sj has scratches in!
