Removing the Rail below the drivers door.

Hi everyone, I read a while back someone wanting to know how to remove the rail under the drivers (or passenger) door. Well today I removed mine, and thought I would take a few pics to show how its done.

1. The Rail.

2. Removal is just pulling upwards. Start at one end.

3. Carefully work along the rail, pulling upwards.

4. A quick view on the underside of the rail showing the clips. These just clip over the vertical seam.

Be patient and try not to false it.
