Installing Door Weatherstrip

I ordered the full set of driver's side door weatherstripping for my '01 Extended Cab XLT. Has anyone swapped out their weatherstrip before? Are there any areas of concerns or things I need to be aware of? I've heard, that there's no gluing or anything involved, that it's pretty a much a snap-on, snap-off type of installation.

Thanks. Do you know if I have to remove any of the molding from the door frame (not on the door itself, but the door opening)? I can't see how the opening stripping can be pulled out/off without removing the trim. Am I missing something?

SUCCESS. I was able to replace all my driver's side weatherstripping. The trim came off fine, however it's a scary sound it makes while dissconnecting. I"m pissed now, since I paid the dealer to do this same replacement on the passenger's side. I'm not the most hands-on type person, so I really feel good about not only getting this done, but for not breaking anything along the way too.
