I am pretty sure the Vega trim comes off the same way as the Monza you will need a trim removal tool like one of these, you will reach in under the trim and gently slide until you hook one of the clips, at which point you lift it off the trim by rocking the tool to release the trim and simply lift the trim off after you undo them all! There is another post with pic's links and way further description. You would get behind the "Clip" with the hook and pivot the tool on the peak at the top. I have broken a windshield with my tool you must ensure that there isn't any debris between the clip and glass or this will be a wasted effort to save the glass! Harry
