Remove the tail light assemblies from the car.
Then the chrome strip has slightly bent tabs on the inside lip of lens.Flatten them out carefully,the chrome will simply lift right off.It's made from anodized aluminum,very soft so be careful.
Reverse to reassemble.Here's a couple pics of one I played with.In the pics you can see the trim and a couple of those retaining tabs.Pretty self explanatory.Good luck. Jim

Most of the strips will almost fall out if you tug on them a little. The clips are usually rusted, and falling apart.

91-92 have metal clips that are U shaped, the chrome plastic cente trim just clicks onto them. A plastic spatula or nylon/plastic interior trim tool will get them right off.
