    It's been about 20 years since I removed them from my 74 Charger SE, but I believe they were push on. Just pry off with a flat screwdriver under the outer edge on the thin part.

      This is what the clips that hold them on look like. Looks like you pry them off from the inside by the door pull.
      Got this picture off this site from a member looking for those parts

      ah....looks similar in function to the tension clips on window trim. Do you know if the covers are metal or plastic? I thought metal initially until i started prying on it.

      No tools are required for removal or installation. Slide it slightly towards the center of the pull strap and pull lightly to pop them off the ears on the retainers.

      It’s not going to feel like it slid.... but slide and pull on one end. There is no screw holding it.

      i thought there might be a screw because it rotates a bit. i could not budge these things...and i put a good amount of force on it. were yours a 72 also? I'd upload pics, but i'm on the at&t "throttle your data" plan, and pic gets stuck at 24%

      It’s held on by these two ears I’ve circled. You have to kind of slide and pull on one end at the same time.

      been awhile. holidays and all, but I found (the hard way) that there is a thin aluminum insert that covers the screw. no way to peel these off without ruining them

      That doesn't look like a 71-74 pull.

        By all visual indication, this car has never been apart. This is a pic of the pull strap before i removed it to address a door dent. Does anyone have pics of a '72 with a different style strap?

        Those straps are infamous for getting pulled out.

        I've seen dozens.

        using ones that attached better was probably a good idea

        Visually yes. But, I believe it’s incorrect. That is probably from from a 75-76? Why didn’t you start the thread with that picture? :BangHead:

        Unclear why you believe it's incorrect based on a 1975. Perhaps a design change after 72?
        Was unable to upload pics with my previous data plan with Verizon. Signal out here in the country was horrible. I would get stuck at 13% loaded. Switched to AT&T, so now i can load pics.
