    Welcome to HK. Please tell us a little more about yourself and feel free to:garage:
    I don't have an Accord, or access to one, but looking at the blowout diagram of a 2007 Accord below, it looks to me like it just unclips. This is assuming I am understanding what you are referring to.

    From what I can see from the diagram (and the absence of screws), it seems like it just unclips. Not sure if you will need any tools for it, and if it's anything like my Civic, it takes a bit of force to get it out of the clips.

    It clips out, trim removal tool, lever the clips out. They should just pop out but they do require a fair bit of force as @RogerH69 has stated.

    If you struggle to remove them, go speak to a local windscreen removal company, see if they will pop it out for you as they remove them all the time.
