Drip rail trim removal

Ok how does one remove the drip rail trim?  Seems to be loaded with seam sealer and I'm not seeing allot of room to pry on stuff.
 
Thanks,
Bill

It prys off.  It's a bear to do without damaging it.
 
Are you talking about in the gutter you have gunk?  There is a special gutter material for that.

Couple ways to get it off. You can use your fingers and start at one end and twist it from the bottom up, move a little bit at a time and slowly peel if off. Another thing that works is a church key bottle opener, the square end, again, gently peel it from one end to the other, bottom side upward. Most of the time once you get it started it will slowly peel up and off after it gets started, and from there just make sure you go slow enough not to bend it, so take your time. And Steve is right, the gutters have a special rubber in the gutter to keep them from rusting, but Steve, is there fresh stuff available that can be purchased, and what is it called? Going into the paint store and asking for gutter glue just doesn't seem right.dana442010-11-20 01:54:16
