    Hi there,
    The bumps strips are extremely easy to remove, Heres how; Get a video case & open the front door just a bit then using the video case put it on the front vertical edge of the bump strip & give it a whack, You will notice the bump strip slide backwards, it will need to slide back about 1/2 inch, Then gently waggle it off,
    To do the rear doors same again but whack it forward towards the font of the car (leaving the front door open) then again gently waggle it off,
    Re-fitting is just a just a matter of lining the clips in the keyhole type holes & slide back,
    Job Done!!!
