How to remove this... Pic attached
So, I am installing the running boards on my rig and to make the job easier I need to remove this part of the door (under the door actually). Yes, the brackets do go around this part of the trim, but the process of installation would be much much easier if i could remove this part, install the brackets, then re-install before I attach the actual running boards. I know there are about 5 or so of the black "plugs" (similar to the ones used on the front bumper) but just wondering if anyone has removed them.
FYI, the part in question is the black brow that runs the length of both doors (but under the doors)
