    start at the back. lift up. do not allow them to bend as they are aluminium.
    if you have a plastic pry tool it will make your life easy. once you get the first clip up its pretty straight forward and easy.

    For what it’s worth I’ve pulled the rails off all of my cars to repaint them and never had a broken clip, i think because they’re out of the sun they don’t age as badly.
