Those rails just pop up. They're held in by like 5 or 6 clips I think. Start from the back (like in the OP's picture) and use a small flathead screwdriver. You can use the seal on the rear windshield as leverage. You'll probably break the first clip or 2 but after you get the second clip up you can slide the rail'll just come off.

The seals are glued in but they're easy to take off and replace too. I didn't even reglue mine. They just slid back in.

You could also vinyl the trim. I didn't have that peeling but I vinyled mine matte black. Just make sure you sand the paint flat otherwise the chipping will show through.
