    removing plastic trim clips

    help! i'm trying to remove my rear seat cowl & can not figure out to remove the plastic trim clips on the underside of my seat (plastic cowling). normally they screw out some & then u can just pop them out, but the screw in mine (small phillips-head type) is either stripped or something cuz as i turn it rotates but does not release.

    anyone with suggestions?

    I have had to use a small common screwdriver to apply a little pressure between the phillips head part and the other piece of the clip as I was turning it out. Sometimes just a little pressure makes the screw part bite and back out better.

    yeah it will make you a little nervous the first time you have to pry open the sides to pull it loose.. but once you do it a few times it's easy..
