I tried to take mine off to paint them. Broke one off. Really the only way to get them off is to break them. The back sides are sealed in the fender, and you can't get to the clips from the front.

I ordered replacements from the dealer, but they didn't get here in time to be painted with the rest of my stuff

You have to buy new clips (not included with the strips ) Then you just push them back into the mounting holes.

When the parts guy at Subaru lets me know they're in, I'll get the numbers and post them. I don't have them right now.

Problem with that was the "booth" in my buddies garage wasn't big enough; parts size only.

I snapped mine off; both peices came out with the upper mounting posts intact, but the retaining peices broke off inside the fender well. To get them back on after I had them painted, I applied a bead of automotive silicone sealant/adhesive all around the inside edges of the peices. They're contoured to fit the body of the car; I just used the upper posts as a guide when putting them back on, applied some pressure for a few minutes, and the silicone did the rest. They stay on just fine. No need to order new ones.
Thanks,
Syncros
