    Front? Or quarter windows?

    I managed to lever them with a screwdriver without damaging clips nor bending them...

    If your stripping a spare car I'd be keen to buy the rear quarter window clips/screw tho

    Like most of my stuff I buy direct from Japan or via RHDjapan and various forum sponsors when the prices are good...

    it's been 5 years worth of collecting bits and pieces..my advice would be worry about chassis preparation and motor before you bother with the parts/minor bits an pieces...

    Use a plastic type prying tool. Also examine the workshop manual online to see the fitting process. That way you can workout how they attach and how they should remove easily. Not a part you want to be chasing up later if you can avoid it
