You should specify what your process was and try to post some pics, it would help.

With out looking at pics I would guess:

To remove, I would just yank it off and use goo gone to remove the tape that is left over. Wax those areas. then try to re-do the job.

You will have to replace all the double sided tape with some other double sided tape. Replace the tape just to be sure it will stick when re-doing the install.

wouldn't yanking off the bracket bend it.i tried yanking it off at first and it looked like the bracket is bending. i'll go buy some goo gone and see if that will work. i followed the insstruction page for page and used the supplied templets and it still turn out crooked.

when i took of my sides off to do basically the same thing i used a butter knife with tape wrapped around the end and un-did all the bolts and screws and used my finger to pry as i cut the double sided tape away and went over the left over tape that was left on the body of the car with goo-gone

ok, first of all i tried prying it apart because i was trying to avoid the sticker residue but it didn't work. then i tried the knife method and it worked but left a residue. so i used goo gone and that worked like a charm. thank alot fellas.
