99 American Eagle Belt link trim

Does any one know how to remove this trim piece? There were screws on the bottom that secured the basement door hinge/seal rail. There appears to be a separate inner rail in the top that screws to the side wall that secures the top of the this trim. I assume this trim piece just needs to be pushed up to release from the inner rail. There is a painted bead of sealer on the top that I probably need to remove. Any help or pictures would be appreciated

My AE is much older but the Belt Rail looks the same. I've had the Molding off in places to replace rusted screws, that was years ago.
Never did remove the top 4 in molding Belt Rail.
Why do you need to remove it ?

I am replacing all the steel frame for the basement. Basically every thing from the interior floor down. Would be helpful to remove that to replace the 1-1/2 x 3/4 on the top of the door frames and even some of the 1-1/2 square tube above that.

Thanks those drawings are helpful. Mine looks like that but there is a retaining piece that secures the upper inner part of the belt line trim.

Call American Coach and ask them !
They have been helpful in years past - Mine looks to be secured with the screws behind the Plastic trim- My doors swing up so there are no hinges.
Let me know what you find out - please !

Yeah, just haven't had the 30 minutes to wait on hold to talk to some one that might be able to help. They did email me the mfg drawing for the side steel structure a while ago, but havent returned any emails the last month or so.
