    theres clips that hold them in to take them off right you have to take the door panels off and the rear sides of the interior, and the same for the fenders take them off to get to the clips

    There's going to be a ton of holes in your door when you pull them off...

    Oh and I'm looking for the JDM thin side mouldings, I can't find them anywhere for a sedan. So if anyone knows where to look, point me in the right direction.

    well the molding covers the holes up when you put the molding back on, but if you want to take the molding off for good you will need to bondo it up
