How to remove wheel molding 2013 Cherokee

I would like to know how to remove the plastic molding on the rear doors of my 2013 Cherokee Limited. With only 9000 miles on the car the road rash is severe, so I ordered new molding (PN/1MP37RXFAD). It's the plastic molding attached to the rear door that blends in with the wheel well molding when the door is shut. It looks like I should just pull it off. Any tricks to this?

BTW: I'm waiting to hear from Chrysler, there is a remote chance they will cover this problem.

Is this what you are looking for?
23 - Body/Exterior/MOLDING, Body Side/Removal
REMOVAL

Apply a length of masking tape on the body, parallel to the top edge of the molding to use as a guide, if necessary.

Warm the effected adhesive type molding and body metal to approximately 38C (100F) using a suitable heat lamp or heat gun.

Pull stick-on molding from painted surface.

Then there is this:

23 - Body/Exterior/CLADDING, Body, Sill/Removal
REMOVAL

If needed, remove the front and rear wheel and tire assemblies.

Drill out the rivets (4) at the front and rear wheel opening.

Remove the fastener at the rear wheel well opening (2) that secures the sill cladding (3) to the body.

Drill out the rivets along the bottom, that attach the cladding to the body.

Using a trim stick, gently pry the cladding away from the body and release the clips (1) along the front and rear door openings.

Remove the cladding from the vehicle.

Thank you for your response. I am also considering the replacement of the sills (your image part #3), however the part I am referring to is #3 on the image I have attached to this response.

Door


Release the clips (2) to separate the fender flare (1) from the door (3).

Remove the fender flare.

Thanks Lee, I assume 'release the clips" essentially just means to carefully pull the part off of the car?
