rocker trim removal tool?

Post by LandShark » Thu Jan 11, 2018 1:29 am

Howdy guys, I removed the fender for rust repairs and simply slid the rocker panel trim aft in order to facilitate removal. Could someone suggest a good prying tool? I was so scared of bending the trim.

Also, are these clips #17 ? http://2009.bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/ ... _covering/

I always use one of these.

Part #17 is correct, but be aware that there is also a clip which is retained by a 10mm plastic nut.
