Having removed trim a million times over the course of the last 30 years, I will tell you that using a screwdriver is your worst option! If you go that route, make sure and cover it with a cloth of some type, it is really easy to chip or mar the mating surface.

I don't have a trim kit but use an old plastic spatula. I just went out the car with my trusty spatula, removing that trim piece under the handle is simple, just get under it at the front of the trim (front of car), upper mating surface, pry it out with medium force but not too far, this will give some space, move further back along the top, keep prying with medium force, it will work out.

Also depends on the car the previous owner had mine in the sun for 5 years, now its kept inside....any way I took the headliner out to redo it and one of the A piller post broke abd both rears broke they were so brittle, so I have chosen to replace it all........if your car has been kept out of the sun you should be ok..but as said above why people say use a flat screw driver is beyond me. They make a hard plastic tool for that. Good luck.
