    Start at the bottom of the windscreen and carefully pull and waggle the strip off the clips. once you get the 3 up the side of the widscreen off, start working your back along the roof.

    If you're very careful you'll get them off without busting any

    They come off by pulling upwards, starting at the window and then working your way along the roof. I found out when i watched the guy replace my window screen.

    I cleaned mine then, couldnt believe how much stuff gets stuck behind there.
