    There are hex head screws on the underside, Phillips on the top. You will also have to undo at least 3 screws that go up each wheel well chrome to slide it out from behind the chrome. I highly recommend kroil oil (penetrant) for getting the screws out of the wheel well chrome. Spray then undo the rest of the screws then do the wheel well screws. Also, the Phillips have a tendency to strip. Have a dremel with cutoff wheel at the ready and a steady hand.

    There's only screws on bottom, NONE ON TOP, unless it's a rocker trim off of a Brougham Coupe, then you'll have the screws on top. But there is only bottom screws and also, NONE on the side like mentioned above now this only applies to the trim under the door, the long thin one. If you're removing the rear trim and front, then you'll need to undo at least one side screw for the wheel well trim to slide out both front fender rocker and rear quarter panel rocker....
