Ambient light strips in door removal

Is it easy to remove the ambient door lighting strip to try to address a rattle? I don't feel like leaving the car at the dealer for a day just for this and I have a while until my next service is due. I'm hoping its simply snapped in but I'm afraid to experiment by pulling too hard on it. Any insights appreciated. Thanks!

Nope , the ambient light has to be remove from behind the door panel, you cannot pull the light from the front you definitly will break it.
The door panel its easy removed , just have to pull the handle panel and unscrew the two screws there. The you have to pull the panel from the bottom up.
Hope it helps.
