2012 WRX Sedan - Remove Window Trim?
2 Attachment(s)
I am trying to figure out how to remove the chrome window trim on a 2012 WRX sedan as well as the piece that wraps around the rear windows above the doors / quarter panel. Has anyone does this or can anyone point me to a tutorial?

I want to remove the one chrome piece because it's dented, and I figured I would take them all off for easier platidip or overlay application to black it out. The other black plastic piece is just scuffed up and I want to replace it.

Now for the triangle peice, i haven't taken a look at it but it should be either a screw on the inside that you take you or it might pop out but that is just my 2c

Saw you post this earlier on maybe LVSE.
Can't believe the dealer is such a pain in your ass.
I voted to just dip it, simply because it should hold up to our elements and can be redone very quickly if needed. Imagine if you ran into this same problem a year from now. Than had to replace these parts all over again. That would pretty much suck a fat one.

Thank you. Yeah, the dealership has someone who is careless working back there or something, but their responsiveness and willingness to make things right has been exceptional. They ordered me a new trim piece.

I'm afraid of the Plasti Dip not being smooth. Can I do all the trim including what's already black?

I'm pretty good with overlays.

I plastidipped mine a few weeks ago. Theres a good tutorial on youtube on how to do it. I just followed those instructions and it came out pretty good
