    Wanting to remove the trim on the top of of the door. Is it bolted down or does it have clips that hold it on?

    Im assuming your talking about what i have circled in the pic below, if so to answer your question, neither, there are no bolts or clips, it just kinda slides on, really simple, but you have to take the piece with the 4 screws off first thats going down the channel run.

    Ohh ok, i think i got what you mean now, the trim piece that sits right on top of the window sweep is actually part of the window sweep and cant be removed, ofcourse you can remove the window sweep, but youll have to take the door panel off first, and i believe there are 5 screws holding it down. Hopefully i got it right this time lol
