Heat gun on low setting, then either peel the molding off by hand or use some high test fishing line and run it behind the molding strip. Then use some adhsive remover to get the rest of the glue off. You can also look on youtube there are some viseos of doing that others have posted99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

I use zippo lighter fluid. Sounds crazy but it works great, it's strong enough to get the glue but it won't hurt the paint. Put it this way I use it at work to remove decals from $250,000 prototypes and I never worry about it hurting the paint which is PPG auto paint.1997 Chevy K3500

Would wd-40 work? It says that it removes sticky substances.

how do i remove autograde adhesive
I used 3m adhesive wheel, but I precleaned with 3m adhesive remover because I could see some dirt in the old adhesive on the truck. After I remover the adhesive I cleaned again wth the adhesive remover and then polished and waxed area. I did this on my black Z-71 and had no marks left in the paint. Take your time.

heat gun to soften up the glue/moulding. i used Turtle Wax mild rubbing compound to remove the leftover glue. sounds crazy but it works.

WD-40 will do great works on any adhesive problem, I sometimes use it when I get tar from the road like when you may go through a construction zone where the roads are being repaved and you get tar down the side of you're truck spray WD-40 on it let it sit for about 20-30 minutes and just wipe it off with a rag, WD-40 does great.
