...I just bought a new windshield frame as than I can switch back and forth from short to med...there is no easy way to remove, a wire cutter and small screw driver is about the only way to get them off.  Pry up on a corner of it and keep working it up until you can get the wire cutter under it and snip or keep working it up with a screw driver, once it flips directions it will be a little easier.

They make an auto body tool that I use which helps ease the pain. It looks like a mini pry bar....I'll try to attach a picture if I remember when I get back.

If you are removing them often to switch around your windshields it will peel the plastic rod they hold on to every time you remove them.  Eventually they won't hold at all or you will break off the little plastic rod which will cost you a new trim piece anyways.  In the long run it may be cheaper depending on how careful you are and a LOT easier to buy a second base trim to install on your other windshield.  That way you only have to pop it off the rubber grommets and pop the different windshield on.

Forgot to snap pictures of that tool, but I have a stock low white base, P/N 517305952 - a Medium/High black base, P/N 860200944 - $20 each

Or I also have a 13.5" windshield kit with side deflectors P/N 860200759 for $100 if you want to have a spare and swap them out.

All of them are brand new with hardware.

I'll list them in the classifieds too. Been meaning to do that I this thread finally pushed me :)
