use a thin card of some sort, preferably thinner than a credit card but hard, stick about half of it into one of the corners and pull towards you. Its only held together by snap on clip things, so don't worry about breaking anything. once the corner comes out, start tugging slowly along the rest of the trim. you'll have to remove the 2 wires connecting to the lock switch and emergency light. just use pliers for that if you can't reach your fingers into there. For the start/stop button, squeeze the back clips and push away from the trim.
