Rear door inner window slot seal removal

Does anyone know the proper way to remove the inner slot seal? This is the rubber piece with felt that sits on top of the door and seals the interior side of the window. The manual says to remove the door trim (did that), then pull up seal equally without distorting or bending. I used my plastic interior lever and wedge and for the life of me can't get it to move. I don't want to over muscle it and break something. Is there a special tool? Thanks

Apparently these things have a tendency to break or get stuck in the door, I guess I was lucky. Either way its probably best to pick up a couple spares form the dealership or whatever.
I realize now that the part numbers are actually stamped on the little plastic door panel trim clip rivets, but for those who have an aversion to small text, or haven't removed the panel yet, the part number for said clips is 7L6-868-243, currently at $1.77 ea.

Another tip I learned today while I was at the dealer was that this tool will help remove the door panel without breaking any clips. You'll notice it's approximately the price of seven clip replacements, and while several have reported successful removal without breaking any, I'm sure some of you will be rather more risk adverse.

So when it's in locked position, is there any way to unlock it and use it or you have to buy new ones?

my door latch is freezing below -5 deg C..... It has been lubed by the dealer externally and does not help.
Anyone had similar problem?
I am thinking the cable that connects the door handle to the latch is seized and does not move freely.
there is absolutely no issues in warm weather or even cold weather until it goes below -5 deg C.....ie 20 deg F......

If you don't have panel pliers, I found that shoving two of those plastic panel pry bars between the flange that mounts to the door panel and the plastic locking tabs will get them to unlock. I only broke 1/7 (the white plastic cap cracked and fell off) using this method, but had spares on hand.
