Hi there folks...

I'm feeling like a little bit of a dummy here, but how do you remove (the right way?) the side trim on the Fairlanes? ... Mine's a 67... I have just a touch of work to do on them, just wondering how they come off? I actually have an upper and a lower trim.

thanks in advance...

Some of them you can get to the nut from the back side of the door. They are the clips themselves are kinda oval shaped with a wire spring attached to them. You can get a plastic tool that will allow you to get behind the trim and compress spring while twisting the oval plate. this allows you to slide the trim off.

On 62-64's the end clips are bolted, u can get behind the fender, door panels to get em off, do you have a factory manual? It shows every clip, how it mounts & a part #.
Anyway once i got the end clips unbolted, i could actually slide the long side trim off the rest of the body clips, pretty cool.
Also, most of the side clips, u will see 2 little tabs near their center, spread those apart, & it relaxs the tabs under the trims edge, allowing them, to fall off, to install, squeeze thoise little tabs together, tigthening the clip to the trim
