How do i remove the rear door belt molding on 2002 Honda Civic

I need to repalce the belt molding on the rear door. Does this require removing the movable and fixed glass to access the clips that hold the belt molding on? Or can it just be pried off with out causing damage.

Most exterior door belt moldings are double stick tape attached. When ordering the new part from the dealer it will be obvious from the parts picture if plastic clips are used also, if so get them because they almost alway break when removing. Some gentle prying with plastic pry bars should do the trick, sometimes an adhesive remover will help and a warm temperatures make it easier also. Hope this helps.
