    Anyone know how to remove the plastic strip between the carpet and rear door seal? trying to run a antenna wire under it but didn't want to break anything.

    Thanks!

    Never done it personally but most of the plastic you basically work your fingers underneath and pry it off. Sometimes there's a tool but hands usually work. Some of that stuff has tabs that break off then doesn't snap back good and tight...Try to google it also.

    Just put your fingers under it for support and pull straight up. Snaps back in when through. Popped all mine off while running speaker wire for my audio upgrade.

    Just beware of gold weather they are more prone to breaking when cold.

    I bought a trim removal tool kit.. it works very well, there are 4 or 5 large fasteners that hold that piece down. I lifted it enough to see them but didn't pull it off, it would have taken quite a bit of force and I didn't want to risk breaking anything. Thanks!
