I haven't had any issues either. That's with spraying a pressure washer directly onto it.

Yes they come off very easily. Pull off the weather stripping from the window, then just un-snap them.

Then here's the most important part.....PAINT THEM OFF THE CAR!!!!!!!

I don't even want to think of the over spray on some of the cars in this thread.

Not sure what the problem is with overspray, it rubs right off after it dries with no residue left after the fact.
