I need a little help. Who’s got the best hack for removing old brittle T molding? The old top piece comes off easy-peasy but the part in the groove is my problem. Who’s got the best way of digging that out?

If it is brittle....try heating with a hair dryer to soften it up just a bit. I have used an ice pick that is bent at a 90 degree angle to get under the center leg and lift it out

I use these, handy for weeding vinyl also.
