I dont have a bike rack dilemma. I'm just not getting one. I'm confused about your dilemma. What's wrong with the wood?

Why don`t you just purchase a plastic trim remover tool from BSW, and try to do it yourself. It seem easier and a solid backup plan lol

Its not hard to remove the trim. Its not as flimsy as you think. I removed mine by sliding 2 credit cards between the trim and the dash and slid a flat head screwdriver between the credit cards and pried it. You wont mark up the dash or trim that way. You have to use a little force at first.....then it will just start popping off.
