Does anyone have instructions on how to remove the window trim?
Not having luck with removing it and thought I would ask

Mine is clouded and I'm thinking I would like to wrap it properly as opposed to refinishing it.
Will post a DIY thread if anyone is interested in the process and wrap if there is any interest.

Thanks

Bubba

Pretty sure you just need to pull the trim straight upwards, not outwards. That's how they work on my P1 S40. Even though I haven't removed them from my P3 S80 I have looked them over and believe they're the same way. Try the driver's door first and pull the edge of the trim straight upward on the b-pillar side of the door frame (the right), then as the trim comes up you may need to slide it to the right a bit if the left side goes under the sideview mirror housing.

Several months ago I hit my trim with some light compound to get rid of the "water-spots" and cloudiness then applied some CQuartz DLux , still looks great.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply. I think you may be right for the lower window trim.

Any ideas on how to remove the upper trim?

Those look a bit more tricky to me. The front one maybe less so but the rear looks more entailed to remove. If it were me, and they weren't beyond potential rehabilitation with compound and coating, I wouldn't try it.
If they were trashed I'd probably buy new ones. I know you want to take them off for wrapping, but will they go back on easily or be damaged from the removal process? Sorry, can't answer that one. I'll try to look at mine tomorrow. In the meantime maybe these pics will help, or maybe someone can chime in.
