    Not sure how to unplug these clips for the side panel, pull? :D
    They're tight as hell.

    I don't like the fact that the are painted before, and cannot find the name for some aftermarket clips, but that is maybe my lake of English..

      Was going to suggest drill a small hole and put a screw in and pull them out.

        They are called - rocker molding panel clips.
        Fairly easy to find new ones.
