I swapped one over on my 9-5 recently. After the A-pillar trim was off the car, I just pushed down on the part that was inside the pillar trim and pushed it straight out. It came out fairly easily. I thought the original was warped, but it turns out that my last windshield was installed with so much adhesive that it keeps the clip from pushing against the glass.

I wonder if they added more stuff in that area on the later models? On my 2000 and 2001, there's nothing behind the A-pillar trim but sheet metal. I've taken off the trim pieces quite a few times for various reasons. I thought it was interesting that the A-pillar trim was completely redesigned on the Dame Ednas, but I have no idea what the benefit is. If I remember right, some of the more complex curves at the top became part of the A-pillar trim instead of the headliner.
