Remove your side rockers the easy way...

With scissors!

I watched a video on youtube about the removal of the side rockers. Guy forced a few of the plastic clips off with a plastic fork looking body tool then rubber hammered the rocker towards the rear to get the rest off. Guy was struggling, broke a few clips.

I was under the impression that the GM GFX kit came with the tool. When it didn't I went looking for something I could use. Tried a pair of scissors and voila, worked like a charm. Too easy. Insert the tip of the scissors between the clip and the body and squeeze lightly. It compresses the tangs and the clip pops right out. Took me less than 5 minutes to get both rockers off. Was able to reach and pop every clip easily. Started at the back and popped all of the top ones then tilted the rocker down and got all of the bottom ones.

Dooooo eeeet!

Pffffft. Job was too simple and took no time. I'd need a high speed camera to catch it
