I'm going by a cobwebbed memory here, but there should be screws on the bottom. Remove those and gently pull toward and lift at the same time. Should slide right off but be gentle so it doesn't jump up hard and scratch the finish.

Before you remove the trim, run a 3" wide of painters tape on the body to protect the paint in case the trim pops up as stated above.

yeah thats a good idea , i use painters tape a lot, i had rust around tailights got it all fixed but now when i wash car i run the wide tape over lenses no water gets in, takes 5 minutes but worth it in the long run, thanks
