How to replace door weatherstripping?

I bought new weatherstripping for my driver side door and was curious as to the removal of the old stuff. Does the old weatherstrip just yank right out of there? Are there any plastic trim pieces that need to be removed? Figured I'd ask before trying to rip it out.

I've only removed my bottom piece to repair some rust. There are little white clips that snap into the door. For the weatherstrip side, it's T shaped and fit in a round hole. No idea about the rest of the weatherstrip.

I'm actually referring to the weatherstrip that the door seals against. It's both strips that attach to the body of the car.

what type of weatherstripping do you buy? Like the L shape or the T shape?
