Also the front screeen in mine is the original one (doubble glazed? looks like two sheets of glass stuck together) are they leagle to use any more? and that mine dose not have a windscreen rubber but a black sticky substance to reinstall it do I need a rubber as some rubber shops have said yes and some say no?
From what I recall, the stainless is held in by a clip the same as the XA - C models. There should be 4 clips on each A pillar and 8 across the top. The clip is attached to the body of the car and hooks around the edge of the stainless.
To get them off, you need a special tool to dig in under the stainless and pull on the clip to move the hook off the stainless edge and then lift the stainless off. It's a long job and you have to be careful.
The tool I used was called a "panel beaters best friend"
Hope this helps.
