    There is a how-to on drip rail removal.

    Go slow and expect to brake a few clips.

      On the drip rail I use a bottle opener, work the bottom lip and walk it off

        Harbor freight sells fiberglass reinforced plastic trim removal tools. For windshield trim snap on or Mac make a special hook tool to release the clips.

        Like others have said, you need a special tool for the windshield trim clips. For pulling off trim like the drip edge, I found fuse pullers like these worked great. Made of plastic so won't scratch the stainless trim. You still have to use finesse so as not to dent or bend the trim.
