Pry off with fingers or a flat plastic trim removing tool.Plastic clips will break but are easily and cheaply purchased at any rare spares store. Rear doors will have a pin on mould that affixes into a metal sleeve like on fender badges ,Eg kingswood 186 253 etc. Yes they can be painted Mask chrome part and spray whatever colour you want. I bought mixed colours and sprayed white enamel same colour as car

easily removed - undo any screws and just prize them off the plastic clips/ New ones are readily available - same as Hz as well as the plastic inserts to go into body holes...easily painted as well..if very faded (and most do) the paint will adhere well..if not worth priming first,,fill any screw holes on the mouldings with plastic filler...if your car is metallic it may be better to choose a base colour similar to body without metal flake for the side mouldings..http://www.ebay.com....

Be careful
Advice here is correct althought the reason a screw is used is often the metal clip behind has broken off, no proper fix other than good adhesive
Watch out for welded on pin at back of some sections like doors, needs nut taking off
Plastic clips breaking is no problem
Strips are made from both poly ethylene or similar and nicer statesmans a textured rubber. Cast in colour i think but sure rubbe can be painted ok
